Jury Says Doctor Was Fired Improperly

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.
