The California Court of Appeals, Third District, ruled in July that a former regional president for U.S. Bank in Sacramento is entitled to receive $17 million in compensation after a jury determined he was wrongfully terminated, and that U.S. Bank National Association later defamed his reputation.

The jury found that U.S. Bank falsely accused Timothy King of gender discrimination against employees. They also rejected the company’s accusations that King forced workers to fabricate reports. Jurors concluded it was part of a scheme to fire him to avoid paying a bonus.
