Lawyers for a fired state worker say Florida could owe nearly $2 billion to people who were incorrectly reported to credit agencies. Former Department of Economic Opportunity employee Dianne Parcell spoke during a press conference in Tallahassee Monday.

Parcell’s lawyer released video of the woman talking about what happened to her.

A jury is making the state pay $250,000 in attorney’s fees and damages for Parcell’s firing.

To date, the state of Florida has not taken steps to address the 19,000 exempt cases.
