That is SO last week

Last week, the world mourned Cecil the Lion, and all eyes were on the Minnesota dentist who killed him.  The scrutiny of the dentist unearthed, among other things, a sexual harassment complaint lodged against him by a former dental assistant.  The media swooped upon the former assistant, who had settled her claim for $127,500 and a non-disparagement provision.  In an interview, she said “Karma is a b**h – that’s all I have to say.”  Employment attorneys picked up on this statement and wondered “Is it ‘disparaging’ to say ‘Karma is a b**h’?”  The dentist remains in hiding, so we’re all left to wonder whether he will sue his former employee for breaching the settlement agreement.
