On February 10, 2017, the Daily Journal featured a front page article, “Former UC Riverside Lawyer Wins $2.5M in Gender Discrimination Trial,” that outlined one of Mira’s employment victories. Mira won a $2.5 million jury verdict on behalf of the former Chief Campus Counsel of the University of California, Riverside. The jury found after a seven-week trial that Mira’s client was retaliated against for reporting gender discrimination and that the UC general counsel and former UC Riverside Chancellor had retaliated against her in the midst of a federal audit of the University.
