Three Women Win Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Filed Against Alabama State University

A jury of our women and four men found that Alabama State University in Montgomery had allowed an administrator to create a sexually hostile work environment for three women. The women alleged that they were subjected to inappropriate comments about their bodies and clothes and were brushed up against in a narrow filing room. The women also claimed that an administrator made unwanted romantic advances.

The jury also decided that the women were retaliated against after they had filed complaints about the sexual harassment. The women were awarded $1 million for back pay and lost leave time as well as for compensation for emotional pain and mental anguish.

The university stated that it is considering appealing the decision.
