A New York jury has awarded the former editor-in-chief of The Source, a hip-hop magazine, $15.5 million in damages from her sex discrimination lawsuit.
The magazine and its founders were found guilty of retaliation against Kimberly Osario, who complained about sex discrimination, as well as defamation in an interview one of the founders allegedly gave after the magazine fired her.
Osario claimed to have risen quickly through the ranks despite a sexually hostile work environment because “they needed someone to do the job, and at the time I was the best person suited to the job.”
But all that changed, Osario said, after she complained about sex discrimination in the workplace, including X-rated movies shown in the mailroom and posters of scantily clad women on the walls. The magazine and the two former owners say they’ll appeal.
