Stephanie Gribbin, a former broker with Nooklyn real estate, will receive $15,000 in damages from her ex-employer for alleged discrimination after she was fired for allegedly uploading nude photos to company servers.

The company’s owners initially slapped Gribbin with a $300,000 lawsuit last year after she was accused of posting nude pics at work and then pilfering the company’s exclusive listings following her dismissal, according to Brooklyn Federal Court filings cited by the New York Post. But Gribbin countered that the photos in question were tasteful art shots not intended for public consumption, and said her employers trumped up the charges after illegally terminating her because she became pregnant.

The two sides fought it out in court, with Gribbin representing herself. She agreed to accept $15,000 in damages from the firm, and declined to comment to the Post, citing her agreement with Nooklyn. She has since launched her own real estate consulting firm, according to the Post. [NYP]Julie Strickland
