A California physician's assistant and her attorney are claiming victory after a federal jury awarded the woman $168 million as compensation for the hostile work environment that she says she endured at a Sacramento hospital.

As The Sacramento Bee reports, Ani Chopourian alleges that she was also repeatedly sexually harassed during the two years she worked at Mercy General Hospital as a cardiac surgeon's assistant, a position that ended in 2008 with her dismissal on grounds of alleged misconduct.
