LOS ANGELES (Reuters) A former model on the U.S. daytime television game show “The Price is Right” was awarded $7.7 million in punitive damages by a Los Angeles court after suing the show for not letting her return to work after giving birth. The amount was in addition to $775,000 in compensatory damages awarded to 41-year-old Brandi Cochran on Tuesday, after the jury in the case ruled that the producers of the show had acted with malice by not taking her back after her pregnancy.
