A jury ruled early Thursday evening against a former WKU employee who claimed she was fired from her job because she was pregnant.

Junlian Zhang, a former researcher for the Institute for Combustion Sciences and Environmental Technology, sued WKU on charges of pregnancy discrimination, as well as for lost wages and benefits and other charges.

The verdict came after a three-day trial at the Warren County Justice Center.
