A Montana federal judge on Tuesday affirmed a $1.42 million jury award to a former Haas Group International Inc. salesman who was fired after complaining about how his commissions were calculated, finding the payment reasonable.  Axilon attorneys Tom Singer and Betsy Griffing represented the successful party at trial.

The jury in October found Haas owed Thomas P. Jacques about $53,000 in penalties on top of the unpaid commissions, plus about $725,000 in punitive damages and about $598,000 in wrongful discharge damages, bringing the total award to about $1.42 million.
