Female guard wins discrimination lawsuit
MINNEAPOLIS - A Minneapolis security guard has won her sexual discrimination complaint against the National Football LeagueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Jacksonville Jaguars and Marriott Hotels.
Kathryn Gruenhagen will receive $45,000 from the Marriott and $30,000 from the Jaguars.
Gruenhagen was assigned to the JaguarsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ floor at the hotel in December 2001, when the team was in town to play the Minnesota Vikings. According to KSTP-TV in Minneapolis, she was told to go home because the team wanted only male security guards.
She filed a sexual discrimination complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, which she won in late October.
