HSPRD Wins Important Ruling in Sexual Harassment and Retaliation Case

On December 29, 2022, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey T. Gilbert of the Northern District of Illinois ordered Prohibition Junction Sports Bar & Grill in Oswego to give a former employee unredacted versions of certain notes and emails that its attorney wrote while investigating Plaintiff Natalia Hubert’s allegation that her manager sexually harassed her.  The plaintiff is represented by HSPRD attorneys Elizabeth Mazur and Tory Tilton.

“We think the judge reached the correct decision about the privileges at issue,” Mazur said. “It was a mistake of Prohibition Junction to hire an attorney to defend the lawsuit who was essentially a fact witness in the case.”
