Madia Newville Represents Victims of Sexual Harassment

Madia Newville represents sexual harassment victims across the States of Minnesota and Wisconsin against some of the largest employers in the country.

Representative Cases

Sexual harassment of subordinate results in $160,000 settlement.

Madia Newville represented “Jennifer” (name changed for confidentiality reasons), a young woman who was sexually harassed by her supervisor of a period of months. Jennifer’s supervisor:

  • repeatedly bragged to her about his sexual endurance;
  • made vulgar comments about her physical appearance;
  • turned innocent conversations into sexual innuendo;
  • told Jennifer that she should leave her fiance to be with him;
  • told Jennifer to perform lap dances for him as he waived $20 bills at her;
  • repeatedly invaded Jennifer’s personal space;
  • insisted that Jennifer view pornography that he kept on his palm pilot phone; and
  • suggested that Jennifer wear a thong to work.

Even though this supervisor had engaged in sexual harassment at previous jobs, he was still hired. Madia Newville sued both him and Jennifer’s employer for sexual harassment. Though the defendants fought the case tooth and nail for almost two years, they ultimately settled for $160,000.

Sexual harassment of subordinate results in $170,000 settlement in North Dakota. 

We also represented a male and female couple who both worked for an oilfield services company in North Dakota. A manager at the company was sexually harassing the female. When the couple both reported the conduct to senior management, the company responded by terminating the couple instead of terminating the offending manager. Madia Newville represented the couple and secured a settlement of $170,000.
