Denton County has been ordered to pay $115,000 to a doctor who sued saying she was paid much less than a man who was later hired to do the very same job.

Doctor Martha Storrie worked as Primary Care Clinician in the Denton County Public Health Department.  

Storrie's lawsuit claimed that in 2015 Denton County hired a male physician to perform the same duties -- and paid him nearly $35,000 a year more than Storrie.
