Plaintiff was working in a mall store in the bay area. She alleged that she was sexually harassed by her supervisor who would make sexual comments to her, sexually pursue her, and made offensive sexual gestures. The perpetrator denied any inappropriate conduct and the store conducted an investigation clearing him. Plaintiff retained Winer, McKenna, & Burritt who performed an extensive investigation and discovery which tended to support plaintiffs side of the claim. In addition, plaintiff retained a psychological expert who found that she was seriously damaged as a result of the sexual harassment. Further, the law firm claimed that the defense performed an inadequate and biased investigation that disempower plaintiff.
RESULT: Settlement on behalf of plaintiff $285,000.
