She did go to the DM. It's further in the court file. And, hate to say it, but her "stupidity" is typical of people being sexually harassed at work. Just like 90% of people in domestic violence situations cover it up and put up with it for many assaults before they take action, if they ever do. Many just cover up the abuse.

Fact is, from a legal perspective, she has a case and has blockbuster by the proverbial balls.

the company failed to take appropriate action when it was reported by her. they are the ones who are legally responsible for on the job sexual harassment. altho, the attorneys i work for would have all been smart enough to list the SM as a party to the action - suing him personally as well as the company, but hey...not all crawlers are that smart, i guess!!

I can't believe in this world today of sexual harassment , that she showed her breast 2 time to get a promotion. Maybe she did it without his asking? God is she stupid.......

She might win this lawsuit, but she'll have to live with the fact that her breasts are so unimpressive that she couldn't even get a promotion at Blockbuster with them.

OK, I read the report again and saw that you're right, she did go to the DM. But it doesn't give a timeline for when she did (that is, how long the harassment had been going on). The report does mention that she called the store to get the DM's number after she was fired. Not that anything excuses his behavior, but if it was later, I have to wonder why she would wait so long to complain.

And if it seems I'm being hard on her for not speaking up, consider this: my wife was once a victim of sexual harassment at work. She told me about it, and I backed her up 100%. She didn't get a lawyer, since she wasn't looking for a payout, just the chance to continue to work at a job she liked without being harassed. So we had a "nice little chat" with her boss, and made it clear that there would be consequences if he ever so much as looked at her sideways again. He folded immediately, and my wife contiuned working there for a few more years until a better opportunity came along.
So maybe it's because of that experience that I look at someone who would show her breasts twice and have to shake my head.
