ODESSA – A former Odessa UPS Employee has been awarded a large amount of money after filing a sexual discrimination lawsuit against UPS.
Amber Ibarra was awarded $600,000 in a Midland Federal Courthouse Courtroom on Wednesday night.
As NewsWest 9 has reported, Amber Ibarra spent more than five years as the only female driver at the Odessa UPS Package Center.
During the trial, defense attorney asked for a mistrial after a report on the lawsuit was aired on NewsWest 9.
However, the judge denied the request.
The lawsuit listed group of male employees who "do not want women in the workplace because they perceive that men are stronger, quicker, and faster than women, and women are weaker, slower, and have menstrual periods."
