CALLING?HIS?DISMISSAL “reprehensible in the extreme” Justice Jacqueline Cornelius yesterday awarded former director of the Urban Development Commission (UDC), George Edghill, close to a million dollars in compensation in the wrongful dismissal lawsuit he brought against Government.
The judge awarded the 61-year-old Edghill $809 744.43 with interest at six per cent per annum and cost for two attorneys.
Edghill was represented by Queen’s Counsel Sir Richard Cheltenham and Ulric Scott.
He brought the wrongful dismissal case against Government after he was fired shortly after the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Government assumed office in January 2008.
