On February 5th, 2024, Kennedy Hunt P.C. landed a favorable default judgment in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County. The Court ordered Defendant Pace Transport, Inc., owned and run by former football player Orlando Pace, to pay $522,000 in damages to our client. 

The default judgment found Pace Transport, Inc. to have violated the Missouri Human Rights Act and Missouri’s Workers Compensation Retaliation laws. 

Defendant employed our client from approximately October 2015 to April 2018. The default judgment found that Pace Transport, Inc. terminated our client’s employment due to her sex (female), her disability due to her on-the-job injury, her complaints of sex discrimination during her employment, and the exercise of her rights under Missouri’s workers compensation laws. Our client suffered lost wages, emotional distress, and attorneys fees. 

The Court ordered the payment of lost wages, emotional distress damages, punitive damages, and attorneys fees and costs.
