Wanda Johnson v. Health Institute of Louisville

Plaintiff Wanda Johnson sued the Health Institute of Louisville alleging that she had been subjected to unlawful gender discrimination and retaliation under Title IX after she alleged that she was sexually harassed by a male instructor and falsely claimed to have filed a sexual harassment charge against the school with the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights. After a week-long jury trial in 2003 in the Western District of Kentucky, presided over by Judge John G. Heyburn, the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the Health Institute.
