Finding that the plaintiff waited too long to file a complaint after the most egregious instance of sexual harassment she alleged, a federal judge has dismissed a suit brought by a woman who claimed the company president ogled her and made constant suggestive remarks and then reacted to her rejection by publicly disrespecting and humiliating her.

In his 29-page opinion in Carol Afrassiabian v. Procredit Holdings Inc., U.S. District Judge John R. Padova also found that the plaintiff could not bring a quid pro quo claim of sexual harassment because she could never show that her layoff at the time of a merger was connected in any way to her sexual rejection of the president two years before.
