A jury awarded more than $1.2 million to Robert De Niro’s former personal assistant on Thursday, determining that one of his companies had subjected her to a toxic work environment and gender discrimination.
The jury found De Niro was not personally liable for the abuse, but ruled that his company, Canal Productions, should make two payments of $632,142 to Graham Chase Robinson.
De Niro spent three days at the two-week trial — including two on the witness stand — but was not present when the verdict was read aloud in court.
Robinson smiled with relief after the jury left the room and hugged her lawyers before addressing media outside of court. She did not comment.
That’s a pretty nice payday.

The irony here is so thick, you can almost taste it! After years of badgering Trump, he finds justice isn't blind just because of your political beliefs.

Another actor who has squandered all of his positive reputation with the public.
