A Los Angeles jury has awarded a former city engineer $1 million as compensation for discrimination based on national origin and religion. Mustafa Rez, a waste management specialist born in Syria, was repeatedly insulted and barred from promotion in 1994 by his supervisors in the Los Angeles Public Works Department because of his heritage, the jury found. Rez, 49, said he suffered a nervous breakdown, depression, elevated blood pressure and heart problems, and was forced into early retirement.
