Two survivors of the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando claim in a lawsuit that, after they were solicited via Facebook by a New Jersey law firm as clients, the firm’s office manager pressured them for sex.

The plaintiffs also claim the office manager for the Law Offices of Conrad J. Benedetto in Voorhees, New Jersey, enlisted them to help solicit clients who were victims of the October mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas. When the plaintiffs resisted the office manager’s sexual advances, they suffered retaliation, blackmail and were denied reimbursement for travel expenses to Las Vegas, the suit claims.
