A jury in New York City has awarded a  woman $18 million in her sexual harassment lawsuit against her former Wall Street boss. The 25-year-old alleged that the CEO of the New York Global Group began pursuing a sexual affair shortly after she was hired. She broke it off after four sexual encounters and was fired.

Then she sued. And asked for $850 million.

The jury agreed she had been harassed, but said it was only worth $2 million in compensatory damages and $16 million in punitive damages.
