We would be remiss if we didn’t comment on two of the bigger sexual harassment stories to make the popular press. Yesterday, a jury found that New York Knicks coach Isaiah Thomas and Madison Square Garden sexually harassed a former Madison Square Garden employee. The jury awarded the former team executive $11.6 million for her claim.
Last week, Federal Judge Sam Kent of Galveston was reprimanded after a four-month investigation into allegations of sexual impropriety and abuse of power. (Kent has previously been known for his sometimes outrageous opinions. You can view two samples here and here.)
These latest stories both prove that sexual harassment can occur anywhere. And victims shouldn’t refuse to stand up for their rights simply because their employer might be someone famous or powerful.
