As much fun as it is to laugh at MSG, this kind of shiat is such bullshiat. It was painfully apparent this woman just wanted money and that she wans't sexually harassed. All they proved is that some employees cursed, but there was testimony that she herself cursed all the time.


This country is going into the gutter with the thousands of lawsuits like this.

TFA: "U.S. District Judge Gerard E. Lynch called it an 'imminently reasonable' verdict"

Betcha he didn't say that.

I dunno. To me, it really sounded like Thomas was being a douche to her when they were in private. Yeah, it was about the money, but she may have been right on this one.

You have no idea of which you speak. You do not know the facts in this case. You are completely clueless. But, you should not let your ignorance get in the way of future moronic post. We all need to laugh at a tard from time to time.

Is it harassment if she wanted to see his throbbing erect penis?

TFA: The jury did find that Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the woman, and ruled that she is entitled to punitive damages from MSG

How does a building commit sexual harassment?

I don't know. It looked like the perfect storm. A woman who was terrible at her job was sexually harassed. Someone who deserved to be fired was wrongfully terminated. It's typical MSG farkupiocy.

Painfully apparent to everyone except those who actually sat on the jury and heard the testimony firsthand instead of having it regurgitated to them by news commentators or articles.

I'm sure as hell he was a douche. Guy is a douche. But being a douche isn't the same as sexual harassment.

But ignorant douchebags like NightOwl2255 or George Bush have little interest in facts or logic, as long as something "feels" true to them then we shoudl act as if it was true. This Oprahfication of society is a tragedy.

MSG is a company, not just a building. They, MSG officials, allowed the harassment to continue after being put on notice.

ok, billfrist (the farker) is going on the doodie-head list. and not because he denied the woman's claim (i have no idea as i wasn't there) but because he denigrated nightowl2255.

I think you vastly overestimate the ability of random people off the streets to be competent in legal areas. There have been a lot of studies into this kind of thing, and huge numbers of people are more concerned with their own personal prejudices and demographics than the law. See, for example, how many black people still say OJ is innocent or that Michael Vick shouldn't be punished. The fact that a woman got a mostly female jury to say she deserves a lot of money doens't mean that much in terms of the truth of the case.

instead of having it regurgitated to them by news commentators or articles.

you don't think those writers had first hand information as well?

I always knew Clarence Thomas was a Farker, but could not confirm it until now. Bitter, spiteful, and on the Supreme Court is no way to go thru life, son.

sexual harassment among others things is a weapon women can use when they dont "feel" good

ladies, how does you all "feel" today? are any of you inexplicably crying because you are either happy, sad, bored, irritated, ok, pleased, displeased, angry, apathetic, or spiteful?

She's guilty of weak metaphors.

Yeah, don't let the facts sway you. A 3 week trial in which audio tape of Thomas was played that showed he was foul mouthed and did not mind calling women biatches. Thomas admitted he made a move on the woman, and was rejected. Yeah, those pesky facts that jury hear for 3 weeks and found him guilty. But, it just "feels" true.

You sir, are an idiot.
 
2007-10-02 12:22:36 PM
but because he denigrated nightowl2255.


*rolls eyes*

We're talking about the same NightOwl2255 who spent the entire Duke lacrosse case saying the boys were obviously guilty of rape and evne if they weren't they still deserved to go to jail?

Hey, douchebags gotta stick together though.

As noted, there was plenty of testimony that she herself was foul mouthed as a sailor in the office. Oh wait, I forgot, cursing when yo are a woman means you are "liberated" while cursing as a male means you are unprofessional and a sexist pig, right?

People like you should be shipped off to Iran.

Thomas admitted he made a move on the woman, and was rejected.

Man, you dont' even try to be the list bit honest do you?

The only thing he admitted to was trying to kiss her on the cheek once and then saying "What, no love today?" when she moved away.

If that counts as sexual harassment, I was harassed about a dozen times at the last office party I attended.

This is a man who single-handledly destroyed the CBA, and now has basically done the same with the Knicks. He appears to be a complete jerk to boot. How is he still in basketball?

/What's the CBA, you ask? That's exactly my point.

Wow, now you are just a flat out liar. In many, many post I said Nifong should be in jail. You can not find a single post in which I wrote anything even close to what you claim.

NightOwl2255 isn't exactly the brightest bulb in the pack. You can't expect him to pick up on subtle things like "jokes."

It is the women who curse all the time that win these lawsuits. I've counseled clients, and constantly warn the men that flirtatious, even raunchy behavior, doesn't give license for similar conduct on their part.

It isn't the Sunday school teachers who read the Bible on breaks who get harassed; everyone knows not to offend them.

It's the bad girls that curse and hang out with the guys. I had a case where a secretary gave her boss a pair of valentine's boxers. A couple of weeks later, she and a coworker teased him about them, saying he'd never have the guts to wear them. He said he was wearing them at the time, and at their urging pealed his waistband down so they could see the top of the boxers. That was the central act of misconduct that cost the employer $100K.

It's never safe, or appropriate, to act offensively to any woman, no matter how they act to you.

Yep. Exactly.
