Morelli Law Firm Secures Sexual Harassment, Retaliation and Defamation Verdict
Jury Verdict $18,000,000.00
On June 29, 2015 a Manhattan federal jury awarded a young woman $18,000,000 against a Wall Street CEO after a 2 week trial. Her case included proof of inappropriate sexual conduct by her boss throughout her employment as well as defamation, retaliation and stalking for more than a year after she was fired for refusing to give in to his advances. Defendants denied all allegations, contended that defamation of the Plaintiff fell within the company CEO’s First Amendment rights, and attempted to frame the lawsuit as extortion. The jury found for the plaintiff on her sexual harassment, retaliation and defamation counts and awarded the Plaintiff $2,000,000.00 in compensatory damages for her emotional upset and damage to her reputation as well as $16,000,000.00 in punitive damages.
