A jury in a court case in Tennessee has ruled that Blue Cross BlueShield will have to pay nearly $700,000 to an employee who was fired for refusing to take the COVID vaccine.

The employee, one Tanja Benton, sued when her employer would not allow her a religious exemption in 2021 and fired her for refusing the dangerous, ineffective COVID-19 vax. Worse, she was a remote worker, and rarely interacted with any other employees. But she was eventually told she need to vax as a condition of employment regardless of her personal situation.

Benton, though, had deeply religious objections to the fetal cell lines in the vax and refused the jab, nonetheless.

Eventually, she was fired from her 16-year career for refusing the jab.

A jury, though, determined that the company did not offer Benton a reasonable accommodation for her religious objection and awarded total damages of $687,240, including 4177,240 in back pay damages, $10,000 in compensatory damages, and $500,000 in punitive damages.

The ruling states:

The jury found that Plaintiff, TANJA BENTON, proved by a preponderance of the evidence that her refusal to receive the Covid vaccination was based upon a sincerely held religious belief. The parties stipulated that the remaining elements of Plaintiff’s claims were met and the jury was so instructed.

The jury further found that Defendant, BLUECROSS BLUESHIELD OF TENNESSEE, INC., did not prove by a preponderance of the evidence either that it had offered a reasonable accommodation to Plaintiff or that it could not reasonably accommodate the Plaintiff’s religious beliefs without undue hardship. Liability for Plaintiff’s religious accommodation claims is therefore established by the jury’s verdict.

Finally, the jury found that Plaintiff proved her entitlement to punitive damages by a preponderance of the evidence. By separate verdict, the jury awarded punitive damages. The jury awarded total damages to Plaintiff in the amount of $687,240.00, comprised of $177,240.00 in back pay damages, $10,000.00 in compensatory damages, and, by separate verdict, $500,000.00 in punitive damages

Accordingly, judgment is entered in favor of Plaintiff TANJA BENTON and against Defendant BLUECROSS BLUESHIELD OF

We are seeing more and more rulings like this as the fallout over the unconstitutional actions by so many authorities that tool place during the scamdemic are scrutinized.
