According to recent Galveston County court records, Galveston County 56th District Court Judge Lonnie Cox ruled in favor of Alize Shannon on June 3 by issuing a default judgment awarding her $18,905 in damages.
Shannon asserted in court documents filed July 24, 2015 that she, as a minor, rejected her general manager's advances only for the defendant to let her go.
According to the original petition, the termination was an act of retaliation.
Last November, Shannon submitted a motion for default judgment on grounds her former employer failed to answer the suit on several occasions.
The judgment negates a jury trial that was slated to begin Nov. 28, 2016.
