4 former Allstate workers awarded $27 million in defamation lawsuit

NORTHBROOK, Ill. (WLS) -- Four former Allstate workers will split up $27 million after they sued the insurance company for defamation.

The workers were fired in 2009 for allegedly timing trades to increase their incentive bonuses.

Allstate claimed the workers cost the Northbrook-based company $200 million. The workers say that ruined their careers because people could connect the dots and believe they did it.
