It’s just coming out, but The Oregonian is reporting that Oregon lawyers Keith Dozier and Aaron Baker obtained a jury verdict for $19 million in federal court here in Portland on behalf of four Thomason Toyota employees who suffered racial discrimination on the job. Keith is one of my favorite younger lawyers in Portland. He’s committed to doing things the right way. He’s kind of quiet and obviously committed to his clients. I don’t know Aaron, but I imagine he’s talented, too.
Verdicts of this size reflect outrage with a Big O. I’ll keep an eye on this one and be posting about it as I learn more. In the meantime, if anyone out there knows about the case, I would appreciate your comments and would be happy to learn more about the case.
Congrats to the gentlemen who stood up for what’s right and their lawyers who obviously did a great job.
