$1.2 million — The jury award to California’s Newport Beach police Sgt. Neil Harvey, a 27-year veteran, who sued the department after being passed over for a promotion from sergeant to lieutenant numerous times because his then boss, Police Chief Bob McDonell, thought he was gay, and never promoted homos. Harvey is still on the force, and will return to work. [Seattle Times; earlier]
