"OSHA investigated the complaint, which involved the company charging the employee with dishonesty after he tried to report an injury. The company was initially ordered to pay the employee $10,000 in compensatory damages and $40,000 in punitive damages.
 
"Pan Am filed an appeal that was later upheld, and the damages were increased to $250,000."

This is great, glad to see the courts held there ground against industry.  
 
The paint might be new, but this is still a version of the Guilford Rail System............
