A jury is siding with a former Baystate Medical Practices doctor who sued for wrongful termination.
Seventy-three-year-old Francis Duda, a former pediatric pulmonologist, says he was discriminated against for having cerebral palsy and for how old he was.
The Hampden County jury awarded Duda damages of just over a million dollars on Monday.
A Baystate spokesperson expressed disappointment with the verdict and insisted that Duda was not fired for the reasons he claimed in the suit.
No word on whether the verdict will be appealed.
