The Oregon Supreme Court says it will be up to a jury trial now to decide whether Michael Cocchiara is entitled to compensation for being promised a job, but not getting it.

According to court documents, Cocchiara had a heart attack and was told by his doctor to find a less stressful job. 

The documents said he was offered a position with the Mail Tribune, but declined it because Lithia officials said there was a new position available to suit his health needs. 

However, court documents said Cocchiara was never hired for the  job at Lithia.
