Q: Curious about a recent sexual harassment case?
A woman today was awarded $1.7M after enduring a company function that had the losing team (men and women) of a competition eat baby food, wear diapers (over clothes), and be spanked with their competitors yard signs. She further alleged sexual assault which the jury did not find.
