Global war against women: sexual harassment, a judge’s description

Here’s a piece from today’s New York Law Journal. This sexual harassment lawsuit sounds as repulsive, as unspeakably wrong as it usually does. That is, it makes you want to scream.

And here’s a judge who slammed it as it should be slammed: ‘Aghast’ at Defenses, Judge Lets Harassment Case Proceed | New York Law Journal:

EONY, 158961/13. “Talk about a hostile work environment!”
