Lisa can cool her heels and coast on some of her settlement money and then probably show up in some PR or spokesman job in local Jackson County/KCMO government.
Hernandez will be a hard act to follow when it comes to being disingenuous, able to lie with a straight face, living in a fantasy world, and sucking up to his boss, but Lisa should do just fine.
And, if it doesn't work out, just sue again for discrimination. The courts are unlikely to see your career pattern.

Please remember that KSHB is the station that crapped on all their existing veteran staff when they hired the young husband and wife anchor team.

I don't blame Lisa Benson for filing the claim, and believe she had a legitimate case.

Unfortunately, television broadcast news is a terrible business that's getting worse. Local news is now nearly exclusively entertainment based drivel, driven by consultants, and a desperate quest to hawk advertising. It's not a "news" business.

I think they discriminated against her lack of talent. Since she is a coloured gal they were obligated to overlook the fact that she had very low skills.

After she eats her way through that lawsuit money, she will be so fat nobody will hire her. I guess they wouldn’t hire her anyway, though.

Go away Lisa.

My guess is that some lawyer told her to file the suit and they would automatically open the treasury. Scripts company has stations all over the country and they know the game so it wasn't that simple. She should have just sucked it up, maybe moved over to channel 9.
