DETROIT (AP) — A one-time radio host who says a co-worker’s perfume made her sick has won a $10.6 million federal jury verdict against her former employer.

The jury on Monday awarded Weber $7 million in punitive damages, $2 million in mental anguish and emotional distress and $1.6 million for past and future compensation. The six-woman jury in U.S. District Court in Detroit spent eight days deliberating.

“I’m thankful that the jury took so much time to come to the right conclusion,” Weber told The Detroit News after the verdict.

Personal comment: Yeah! I would be “thankful” too, if I were awarded $10 million because I could’nt stand the smell of your perfume.
