Sexual Assault and Harassment Settlement

Lamothe Sexual Abuse AttorneysRecently, Lamothe Law Firm attorneys successfully negotiated a significant settlement of a female client’s Title 7 federal court claim for on-the-job sexual harassment by a male supervisor. State law claims were also asserted under the Court’s supplemental jurisdiction. At issue were the supervisor’s improper sexual physical contacts, inappropriate sexual comments, and promises of wage increases and other employment benefits in return for sexual favors. This egregious misconduct was surreptitiously videotaped by the plaintiff on her cell phone camera.

Among the key factors leading to settlement was LLF’s use of a Hollywood video editing expert to “clean up” background noise in the videotape and the addition of subtitles which allowed the presiding magistrate judge and defense counsel to fully evaluate the gravity of the incident.
