"But we make no apologies for going forward. The system worked for Mr. Atleson."

Sure....Guy does nothing wrong...gets sued, looses his job and the respect of his peers and is dismissed, and he has to find another job in another state with this hanging over his head...

"The system worked"....

Think we need a new system...

Well you just KNOW he winked at her. hehe.
2003-04-14 01:12:30 PM  
Yeah, I always hate peeing when there's a custodian in the men's room changing a lightbulb or emptying the trash. Thats like him coming into my cubicle and pissing on my desk.
2003-04-14 01:12:58 PM  
And I wonder sometimes why I hate so many people.....
2003-04-14 01:13:26 PM  
This is clearly a scam!! Unless the door was marked "do not" or whatever the guy had every right to whip his willy out in the mens room!

I'm a Farkette...and when I head to the ladies room that a male janitor might be cleaning there is ALWAYS a sign letting me know that I won't be alone in there. Why the double standard?? Seems like these women were trying to wrangle in some easy cash. Besides, who DOESN'T like a random willy viewing?!?!?!
2003-04-14 01:13:37 PM  
farking ridiculous.
2003-04-14 01:13:56 PM  
that's stupid
2003-04-14 01:14:04 PM  
do not entering?? my bad

2003-04-14 01:14:12 PM  
One time I was in a museum, and I saw a man walk into the women's room. Security was called, and they pulled the man out of the bathroom. When they asked him why he went into the Ladie's room, he told them he thought it was an exhibit.
2003-04-14 01:14:41 PM  
You can't piss in your own gender specific bathroom, yet it's not illegal for men to put cameras in women's toilets.
2003-04-14 01:15:25 PM  
Faith in humanity, slipping...
2003-04-14 01:15:38 PM  
he sounds like a right pervert
2003-04-14 01:15:55 PM  
Nail them for perjury, filing false reports, et al. I wouldn't shed a tear if they also happened to be fired, publicly identified, and carefully scrutinized by the INS.
2003-04-14 01:15:56 PM  
She was a janitor right? Maybe he just wanted her to polish his knob.
2003-04-14 01:16:05 PM  
Skinink: That wasn't a museum, that was a brewpub, ya drunk!
2003-04-14 01:16:25 PM  
Aren't we safe to expose ourselves anymore? This world is going to the asshats.

You just know he asked her if it looked anything like her husband's...then she'd have a case.
2003-04-14 01:17:19 PM  
Now that they are proven liars in court (purjors, sp?), did they get jail time or deported? Doubtful, that is how this system failed.
2003-04-14 01:17:37 PM  
Callindril: Please (re)-read the article. He had the Maine job locked up already prior to this event taking place. Thankfully, the Maine folks stood by the 'innocent until' theory when they probably could have put the ole kybosh on his job for some BS reasons.

Regardless - Glad he walked away from this episode but I would imagine he would still feel tainted. Something like that has to haunt a person - especially in his field of employment.

We have little Spanish speaking women that clean the men's room at my office. They are in and out of there all day. It's just a matter of time before something like this happens here.
2003-04-14 01:17:42 PM  
That's one more lawyer on the side of tort reform.

I mean it's all good fun (and yacht payments) until suddenly they're on the receiving end of a frivilous lawsuit.
2003-04-14 01:17:52 PM  
He should have pissed on her before he said he was sorry.
2003-04-14 01:17:57 PM  
Did I say I hate people? I meant to say unions.
2003-04-14 01:18:04 PM  
Ahhh...I'm glad to see another valid lawsuit come to an end.
When will all of this cr@p end?
2003-04-14 01:18:45 PM  
The woman whom Atleson had encountered in the men's room told police that Atleson had twice followed her into the same restroom the day before, and that he followed her through the office after she stopped to pick up his trash. But Atleson could show that he was in Maine that day with his wife signing a lease on a house.

Kelly said that after Atleson was acquitted last December on the first woman's charges, the other three changed their stories, saying Atleson had never touched himself in their presence

So even after ALL this the guy still gets no public apology?? And to top it all off, he has to work in MAINE?!?! Gah!
2003-04-14 01:19:30 PM  
Callindril said, "and he has to find another job in another state with this hanging over his head..."

Actually, according to the article, his new job is "a job he had already landed when the Massachusetts incident occurred."

It's a shame what happened to him, but let's not make it worse than it is.
2003-04-14 01:19:30 PM  
What the fark? Who whips out their dick before they step up to the pisser (be it a toilet or a urinal)? Don't even touch the little bastard until you are in pissing position!
2003-04-14 01:19:57 PM  
"Money is the root of all evil"

Gee, I wonder if she knew about his recent settlement.
2003-04-14 01:20:10 PM  
Each of the janitors should be made to give this guy a hummer because of their false and malicious claims.

That would be justice!
2003-04-14 01:20:15 PM  
I would have immediately called in a lawyer-to-lawyer favor at the INS to check them out.

A little scrutiny on their end might stop the BS.
2003-04-14 01:20:21 PM  
My question is, where the hell did four spanish women who apparently can't speak even broken english get the idea to sue this guy? Who told them to start this scam? because I don't think some immigrant cleaning lady who is probably grateful for the work and doesn't know here right swell enough to rock teh boat with her bosses is going to all of a sudden come up with this scam
2003-04-14 01:21:08 PM  
He wasn't coming back from his morning jog, was he?
2003-04-14 01:21:16 PM  
Talk about a witch-hunt. I'm glad he got off scott free. If this happened to me, i'd be so bitter afterwards, i'd be sueing the hell out of everyone.
2003-04-14 01:21:19 PM  
"The System is Down"

/obscure StrongBad quote
2003-04-14 01:21:35 PM  
Sort of counters the "Brain Drain from Maine" theory though.
2003-04-14 01:21:35 PM  
It's a stupid case, but at the same time, I hope the bloody lawyer gets a taste of his own medicine.
2003-04-14 01:21:56 PM  
Ok, one question to all the Farkers out there:

How would you get your member out WITHOUT touching it?!?! Do you do the old zip and whip?? Did they think he was Houdweenie??
2003-04-14 01:23:29 PM  
Let's see....

We're supposed to feel sorry for a lawyer. Who just made a million in court...

Let me think on this...mmmmmmmmmmm NO!
2003-04-14 01:23:39 PM  
I agree with JIMJONES, PISS ON THEM!!!
2003-04-14 01:24:01 PM  
/Richard Jeni (not exact quote)

If a man enters the woman's bathroom, oh boy good luck.. PERVERT!! (machinegun fire). What happens when a drunken woman wonders into the men's room? You'll never see such a cordial group of guys in your life. "Come on in, how are you doing? No don't go, stay for awhile. Everyone out from the stalls THERE IS A WOMAN IN THE BATHROOM! Soap and toilet paper for all my men!".
2003-04-14 01:24:08 PM  
Women who falsely accuse men of sexual harrassment or rape need to serve jail time. Not only do they destroy the men they accuse, but they help to undermine the credibility of women who are actual victims.
2003-04-14 01:24:13 PM  
Besides, who DOESN'T like a random willy viewing?!?!?!

Around 97% of male Farkers, I would guess.
2003-04-14 01:24:31 PM  
That Gringo is lucky. The homies coulda' popped a couple caps into him for messin' with their wimmen'. But, since the aims was money the guns weren't aimed.

Gotta love these "immigrants."

Coming to a neighborhood near you soon... if they haven't already.

No need to travel overseas to view bizarre strange cultures of 2nd- and 3rd-world countries... at present legal and illegal immigration rates and the incredibly high birthrates of same they are predicted to be the majority in this country within 50 years.

Thank you Ted Kennedy. Time to allow what you wanted to live on Marthas Vineyard.
2003-04-14 01:24:39 PM  

I agree heartily. I was wondering while reading this: "Why on earth was he walking around in the bathroom with his wang hanging out? As far as I know, you walk up to the urinal and then whip out the winky, not the other way around.

At least that's how I've always seen it done. I mean... not that I was watching...

ah fakr it.
2003-04-14 01:25:01 PM  
This happened to me once ... okay, not just once, maybe ten times.

Okay, maybe 30 or 40 times.

biatch set me up!
2003-04-14 01:25:07 PM  
Yeah, what Bump said.
2003-04-14 01:25:11 PM  
2003-04-14 01:25:23 PM  
"the incident mushroomed into charges of sexual assault"

great use of the term "mushroomed".
2003-04-14 01:26:18 PM  
Agreed, Smegma, unions suck.
2003-04-14 01:27:54 PM  
Who's gonna be hitting on a Janitor?

First of all, a lady doesn't get a job if she's hot. Hot girls get rich guys to pay their way. Its just the way things are. If you're not hot enough to get a rich guy, at least maybe you're hot enough for an office job.

Now the absolute lowest of jobs is janitor. You have to be cleaning up shiat and piss. You gotta be ugly as balls for this... So you know dude wasn't trying to hit on the girl, no one would want a janitor as a fark. Of course ugly people like to do stuff like suing, so it sounds like all parties involved are disgusting people.
2003-04-14 01:28:14 PM  
Did they think he was Houdweenie??

Comedy Gold.
2003-04-14 01:28:47 PM  
RIGHT ON! and some civil suits for lost wages, pain and suffering, anything else that can be done he should do (I would) let this backfire so hugely that it destroys these assholes lives and they don't even THINK about screwing with people for personal gain again. Let the backslap be so loud everyone hears it. Useless litigation by asswhits trying to take advantage of others is insane and should be punished with torture and jail time.
