Woman loses Wyoming sex discrimination suit
Casper, Wyo. – A woman who worked for a McMurry energy company has lost a discrimination suit against the company.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports that a federal jury ruled against Holly Miller Thursday following a four-day trial presided over by U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit against M&N Equipment on Miller's behalf. It alleged the company unlawfully retaliated against her and finally fired her after she complained that she was sexually harassed by a co-worker.
The company argued that her claims were frivolous and aimed at harassing the company.
Miller also alleged that her former supervisor at M&N called her new employer and falsely maligned her, causing her to lose her new job.
