Utility Appeals Loss In Sexual Harassment Case
Consumers Energy is appealing a $300,000 verdict and thousands more in legal fees after a woman won a sexual harassment lawsuit.
A federal judge in Grand Rapids recently awarded $684,000 in fees to Theresa Waldo’s lawyers. The case was filed in 2006 and went through two trials.
Waldo said she was a victim of repeated harassment by men in the utility’s transmission lines department. There was evidence that Waldo was required to climb transmission towers on a cold, windy day without proper safety equipment.
