Sexual Harassment Victim Seeks Collection Assistance For Award From Defendant’s Estate

Legal Aid’s client was recently awarded substantial damages for the sexual harassment she endured by her former employer, the owner of a small meter reading company.   The individual harasser passed away pending the decision and his daughter was substituted into the litigation as the personal representative of her father’s estate.  Pro bono assistance is needed to enforce the money judgment against the estate. The pro bono attorney would engage in post judgment discovery including but not limited to drafting and serving information subpoenas and preparing for and taking depositions of the defendant’s daughter and potential successor meter reading company.  Although The Legal Aid Society will not be co-counsel on the Supreme Court matter, an attorney from the Society’s Employment Law Unit will be available for consultation related to the matter. Interested law firms will sign a letter of engagement directly with the client and serve as independent counsel.
