A firefighter has settled her sexual harassment case for $850,000. Sharon Januszewski claimed that a male colleague ejaculated on her cot in the fire station, that pornography was present throughout the station and that the City of Oak Park, Illinois, her employer, did not investigate or respond adequately to her complaints of a hostile work environment. She will keep her job under terms of the settlement.

This appears to be a pretty straightforward sexual harassment/hostile work environment case involving disgusting behavior, pornography throughout the workplace and a just a failure to respond in any kind of corrective fashion. One wonders what happens to decency and acting like you'v been brought up right.
