That is SO last week

Last week, former FOX News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment suit against her boss, Roger Ailes.  Ms. Carlson’s complaint makes a number of allegations, including quid pro quo harassment, and was filed against Mr. Ailes individually, rather than against FOX. Since Ms. Carlson’s suit was filed, six more women have made similar allegations against Mr. Ailes. In a related article, Time discussed how courts grapple with what is and isn’t sexual harassment.  Robin Shea also wrote about “he said/she said” in sexual harassment cases and pointed out that cases involving disputed facts still make it to a jury.
