Jury pops life insurance company for $1 million

May 28, 1998
Jurors awarded $1 million to a couple who were denied life insurance by an Ohio company because they do not speak or read English. ``I'm very, very happy that justice exists,'' the couple's daughter, Lissette Otero, said after Wednesday's ruling. ``Thank God we have a judicial system here that treats everyone the same, no matter where you're from."
