Jury sides with Evans Fruit in sexual harassment case

YAKIMA, Wash -- A jury sided with Evans Fruit in the lawsuit that alleged the company was a "sexual playground."

The Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Evans Fruit claiming sexual harassment.

It said a former ranch manager in Sunnyside made threats to women who work for the company.

Both sides were in trial until all claims were denied by a jury.
