As Sheri Urban cited above, the article claims “five figure settlements”. That could be a mere $10,000. My father had a woman file a fraudulent personal injury lawsuit against him for an ‘accident’ which never happened. She had no evidence, no witnesses, except her boyfriend, NO case. But Liberty Mutual handed her $35,000 just the same. This is also routine with big corporations and associations who are targeted with sexual harassment lawsuits. They are a dime a dozen, and they ALWAYS pay to settle them.
Yes, I had a woman claim sexual harassment at a company I worked at because I told her she needed to wear her company shirt in the remote location that I would see her at. It was dealing with MGM studios and just not proper business. I persisted and told the main office as she would not listen. So she lied to the management. THey did not fire me but kept me away from her.
I hope Cain comes out swinging and kills this graciously.
It’s extortion, of course, and the victim classes constantly engage in it.
We had a mentally ill employee sue over ADA in an attempt to get her job back. We paid her $40K to walk away.
