In general, any sexual harassment lawsuit against a big brandname generates plenty of attention. However, its impact multiples exponentially in this #MeToo era.
That has started with Law.com and Abovethelaw promises more soon.
In Law.com Roy Strom reports on this lawsuit and how Dentons has become aggressive in defending itself (maybe not a wise strategy.)
Strom tells us:
"Krunali Parekh, a business development specialist in the firm's New York office, said in an explosive complaint filed last month that Alton Delane, her direct supervisor, had kissed her on the face in front of colleagues, touched her in sensitive areas and used vulgar language to express a desire to have sex with her, all despite her requests that he stop."
A spokesperson for Dentons noted that Delane has been put on administrative leave.
Dentons denies the allegations. Instead, it has, as the saying goes, come out swinging. It contends that Parekh encouraged the alleged behavior. For instance, she had sent Delane a photo of herself in a bikini.
This whole enchilada can mutate into the the racy story which just keeps on giving. Motions can fly about she did, he did. A good time will be had by all, with the exceptions of Dentons, Pakekh, and Delane.
