Postscript on Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville

For those of you who teach Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville in employment law, here are some interesting facts about what happened after the Court's decision, taken from this Nashville Post article :

  • The district court denied summary judgment on remand (2009 WL 3348233).
  • The case went to trial.
  • Crawford was awarded $1.436 million in damages ($300,000 in compensatory damages, $409,000 in back pay, and $727,000 in front pay).
  • Her attorneys received $453,000 in fees, including UW Professor Eric Schnapper, who received $183,000.

Also, the employee resources director -- the one against whom Ms. Crawford testified -- resigned in 2003 after admitting he had falsely claimed to have been a lawyer, a Navy SEAL, and a professional football player in the past.
