The verdict in the Ellen Pao case was delayed
(SAN FRANCISCO)—A judge has ordered a jury to resume deliberations in a Silicon Valley gender bias case after a discrepancy was discovered in the jury count.
The development came Friday after a court clerk had announced in court that the jury had decided that the firm did not discriminate or retaliate against a female worker.
The jury was re-polled after the announcement and a discrepancy was found in the vote total.
The jury in San Francisco was deliberating in a lawsuit filed by Ellen Pao against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
The lawsuit claimed she was fired when she complained about discrimination.
