Lafayette & Kumagai LLP successfully represented a Fortune 100 wireless communications company in an eleven-week trial against three plaintiffs, who alleged sexual harassment and retaliation and sought punitive damages and in excess of $5.6 million in damages and fees. Plaintiffs alleged that their manager and assistant manager sexually harassed them and, in collaboration with others, retaliated against them for complaining to upper management by among other things, denying them promotional job opportunities, terminating one and forcing the others to terminate their employment. During trial, the three plaintiffs corroborated each others allegations and sought indirect damages for having to witness sexual harassment allegedly committed against others. The jury deliberated for just under thirty minutes before delivering a defense verdict on all claims.
