A Florida woman who sued her former employer for firing her while reporting to jury duty is breathing easier after a court ruling earlier this week found she was discharged illegally.

"I'm very happy that the judge decided on the right thing to do," the employee, Juanita "Jane" Trejo-Beverly (pictured), told the Naples News Daily, "because this helps employees who are hard at work during this downturn in the economy go to jury duty -- and lets them know their jobs are protected,"
