Man wins $450,000 over unwanted office birthday party

A Kentucky man who suffered from an anxiety disorder has been awarded $450,000 after an unwanted birthday party triggered a panic attack and he was later fired.

When the company, Gravity Diagnostics, ignored Kevin Berling’s request and held a surprise lunchtime celebration for him on 7 August 2019, he got upset, and days later, Berling was fired, according to a lawsuit he filed against the company in a Kenton County court.
