A judge ordered another $1 million to the three attorneys who represented Jacqueline Weatherly, Cynthia Williams and Lydia Burkhalter, former employees of Alabama State University as part of a sexual harassment suit against the university. In the original complaint, the women claimed that CEO John Knight and associate executive director LaVonette Bartley made sexual advances toward them.
