Defense of Harassment Case for Investment Management Company

We represented a leading investment management and investment services company in a harassment case. A security guard on site claimed that one of our client’s employees had harassed him and sued our client for negligent hiring/retention and outrageous conduct. After extensive review of “swipe card records” (record of entry at each door on security guard’s rounds) and a visit to the facility, our team was able to determine that on this security guard’s rounds, he spent extensive time in this employee’s area (even after he allegedly had harassed him and propositioned him and threatened him in such a way as to make him quit). After the deposition of plaintiff in which these records were shown in detail, the plaintiff dismissed the case with prejudice so long as we agreed not to pursue discretionary costs.
