A former employee of Emporia State University in Kansas has won her case in federal court after she sued the university for not renewing her contract -- over what she said was retaliation for accusing administrators of failing to investigate a racial slur. According to a report from The Hutchinson News, Angelica Hale was working as an administrative assistant and discovered someone had written a racial slur in a notepad in her office. A federal judge ordered Emporia to pay Hale one dollar in nominal damages as well as lost wages and court fees to be determined. (Note: This article has been corrected to reflect the accurate amount of nominal damages Emporia was ordered to pay.)
