A government employee has won a jury trial against Contra Costa County, and the verdict may cost the county more than $1 million.

County employee Bernice Peoples claimed she had been retaliated against for filing sex and race harassment complaints and was passed over for a promotion after 23 years on the government payroll. The jury awarded her more than $400,000 in damages.

The court will now determine how much more the county will pay for her attorneys’ fees.
