A Tarrant County jury has awarded more than $150,000 in damages to a former animal control officer who sued the city of Burleson for wrongful discharge.
Andrea Conzoneri-Kyle claimed that she was fired in retaliation for reporting sexual comments allegedly made by her supervisor. The suit also alleged that the supervisor created a hostile work environment in violation of the Texas Labor Code.
In addition to the damages award, Conzoneri-Kyle may be entitled to reinstatement (which the judge in the case has yet to determine). The city has denied any wrongdoing and will consider an appeal.
