San Diego: the city that almost gets it right

Four city employees were awarded $34,300 in damages after a jury found that they were sexually harassed after being ordered to participate in an event where they were exposed to sexually charged conduct, simulated sex acts and lewd comments for which they suffered stress-related problems such as headaches and anxiety.

$34,000…? That’s it? Is that some kind of joke?

The four city employees happen to be San Diego city (male) firemen and the event in question happened to be the 2007 Gay Pride parade.


Oh, exactly. Don’t get your panties in a wad. They weren’t even touched.

Some thoughts on the original trial, here.

So long as they are never forced to do it again, I'm happy.
