Former University of Minnesota golf coach Katie Brenny has won a sexual discrimination lawsuit to the tune of $359,000 by a Minneapolis judge. This amount was the maximum allowed by law.

According to Golf Week, “More than three years after Katie Brenny filed a sexual-discrimination lawsuit against the University of Minnesota, the former women’s golf coach emerged victorious.

“Brenny, who alleged that the school fired her after learning she is a lesbian, has been awarded a maximum $359,000 by a Minneapolis judge, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. After the ruling Tuesday in a trial that began four months ago in Hennepin County District Court, Brenny’s attorney Don Mark expressed relief for his client.”
