Frank Fletcher Ford lawyers want ssxual harassment lawsuit handled in binding arbitration
In a motion filed today in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri, the lawyers asked the judge to put the lawsuit on hold and order Erin Rooney, 35, to take her claims to arbitration.
Rooney, a former saleswoman, alleges she was partnered with a salesman who said she should be able to sell cars because "of the size of her breasts," and that the men on the sales force frequently made remarks about which of their female customer would be available for sex.
Rooney also claims the men at Frank Fletcher Ford watched "inappropriate YouTube videos" during work hours.
The alleged sexual harassment against Rooney, who worked for Frank Fletcher Ford for approximately seven weeks in September and October 2017, was described in the petition. Details can be found at this link.
