 SEATTLE, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- On Nov. 12 a King County Superior Court jury returned a verdict in favor of a former Washington State Ferry worker for $105,000 against the Washington State Ferry System and the state Department of Transportation, attorneys for Matthew Gruber announced today. The jury's verdict was based upon the Washington State Ferry System's failure to reasonably accommodate the plaintiff's disabilities after he was diagnosed HIV positive.
