A jury awards a plaintiff $200000 in damages in a sexual harassment case a federal district court judge reduced the award to $45000 The judge did so because at the time of the jury's verdict

A jury awards a plaintiff $200,000 in damages in a sexual harassment case, a federal district court judge reduced the award to $45,000. The judge did so because at the time of the jury's verdict, the plaintiff's employer had twenty-five employees, and Title VII caps damages for employers with no more that 100 employees at a maximum of $50,000. However, three years earlier, when the harassment occurred, the employer had 235 employees. Was the judge correct in capping damages awarded to the plaintiff based on the employer's size at the time of the jury's verdict rather than at the time when the discrimination occurred? Why or why not?
