Former Model on 'Price Is Right' Wins $777,000 in Lawsuit Against the Show AP
A former model on 'The Price Is Right" has won almost $777,000 in damages after suing the show's producers on claims she was discriminated against because of her pregnancy, reports the Associated Press.
Brandi Cochran, 41, said the game show's producers rejected her after she sought to return to the show in 2010 following maternity leave. A jury determined she wasn't rehired because of her pregnancy and awarded her $776,944 in the lawsuit against FremantleMedia North America and The Price Is Right Productions, the piece says.
FremantleMedia said it expects to be "fully vindicated" after an appeal. The producers have said that when Cochran sought to return they were satisfied with the show's five models, the piece adds.
