Breaking Trial News: Jury Awards SEIU $1.5 Million Dollars.

This is all still coming in and Tasty is trying to sort it out.

Bottom line:

SEIU spent about $10 million dollars in legal fees, and were awarded only $1.5 million out of the $25 million originally requested.

Charges against 12 of the original defendants were dropped entirely.

NUHW and the Fund for Union democracy have vowed to appeal the ruling.

Here are some links to share what we know, so far:

-An article in Beyond Chron on the verdict that has some details.
-Zombie statement--not up on their site yet
-NUHW statement

will update often.
