Federal Court Denies Motion for Summary Judgment Against Burrow Lee, PLLC Client in Sexual Harassment Case
In a significant sexual harassment case against a middle Tennessee employer, the employer filed a motion for summary judgment to try to dismiss the core sexual harassment and sexually hostile work environment case. We defended against this motion for summary judgment, pointing out to the court, the extensive sexual harassment of our client. This sexual harassment largely consisted of numerous vulgar sexual comments about our client from her direct supervisor and others. After extensive briefing, the Court agreed with our position and denied the motion for summary judgment on the sexual harassment claim by the employer. This was a significant victory for our client to allow this case to move forward. The opinion on this ruling can be found at this link.
