ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A major gender discrimination case involving Anheuser-Busch is slated for trial this week in St. Louis.
It’s the case of Francine Katz, who was once the highest-ranking woman at the brewery and on the Strategy Committee, but according to her lawsuit, not paid as high as her male counterparts.
Katz is asking for lost wages and punitive damages. Anheuser-Busch attempted to have the case moved someplace else, appealing all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court refused to hear the case. Jury selection is scheduled to go underway this morning in Division 10 of St. Louis Circuit Court.
