LOS ANGELES : $2-Million Award Upheld for Fired Radio Official

March 26, 1993

A former general sales manager for KNX radio who sued the station for unfairly firing him in 1987 will get to keep a $2-million judgment awarded him by a jury, the state Court of Appeal has ruled.

The appellate court upheld the award to Dean LeGras, who was fired by the station at age 52 in what company officials argued were cost-cutting measures. LeGras argued that he had been one of the station's top sales producers for 23 years and charged that the station had breached an implied contract by failing to act in good faith.

LeGras, who now works for a media broker in Northern California, had to sell his house and move because he could not find work locally at his age, said his lawyer, Roger C. Stern.
