Employment Discrimination

This case presents the following question:

Whether the evidence presented at trial permitted a reasonable jury to find that Monteagudo’s failure to invoke the employer’s reporting mechanism was reasonable, thus precluding petitioner from entitlement to the affirmative defense to liability for sexual harassment by supervisors under Title VII established by this Court in Burlington Industries, Inc. v. Ellerth, 524 U.S. 742 (1998), and Faragher v. City of Boca Raton, 524 U.S. 775 (1998).

Michael Kirkpatrick and Leah Nicholls of Public Citizen assisted the respondent, and the Court denied cert.
