Ousted Ryan juror wins lawsuit

The woman kicked off the George Ryan jury has won a lawsuit against her former employer.

Back in 2006, Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer removed Evelyn Ezell from the jury after it was revealed Ezell failed to reveal her arrest record on the jury questionnaire. She was then fired from her job.

She sued claiming retaliation, discrimination and harassment. She won the lawsuit after the defendant, Dessent Roofing, didn't answer to the suit.

In a twist of fate, the same judge that kicked her off the jury will now decide what damages Ezell will be awarded.
