A federal jury has awarded nearly $888,000 in damages to a man who said his Idaho employer discriminated against him because he is Hispanic. Ricky Garcia began working for PSI Environmental Systems in Twin Falls, Idaho, in 2005. He left to take another job in 2007, and filed a complaint with the Idaho Human Rights Commission contending that company officials passed him over for raises and told him that Hispanic workers would never be promoted. In February 2009, the commission found PSI had discriminated against Garcia, and a federal jury has now agreed.
