Man who says boss called him 'Big Indian' wins $40K in suit

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — A man who says one of the owners of a Maine-based jewelry company called him a "Big Indian" when he worked there has won $40,000 in a lawsuit.

Jason Brown said comments his employers made, including about "Indians and firewater," made him feel his Native American heritage was reduced to a joke and a stereotype. Brown is a Penobscot Indian Nation member.
