Caldera v. Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation, 053168

Reversed an order granting a new trial in an employment discrimination case where a jury awarded a correctional officer $500,000 on his claim that he was severely harassed at work because he stuttered. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation requested a new trial on the issue of damages, which the trial court granted on its finding that the damages award was excessive. However on appeal, the Fourth Appellate District concluded that a new trial was not legally required and it reversed the new-trial order, affirming the judgment in all other respects.
