7-Eleven Lawsuit

A fired 7-Eleven manager in Florida has won $934,000 in a discrimination suit against the company. Jim Soliday worked for 7-Eleven for more than a quarter of a century, but was fired because he is deaf. The Naples resident used a fax machine to transfer and review data and pagers to communicate with managers and headquarters. Soliday supervised about a dozen people and his system worked fine until a new supervisor took away his fax machine and pager. 7-Eleven is expected to appeal the verdict.
