Settlement reached in Workplace Sexual Harassment Case

Workers' Comp

A settlement has been reached in the case in which Taubman Law was handling on the behalf of our client a former Franklin County Common Pleas Court bailiff who alleged a judge sexual harassed her at work and a court administrator failed to act on her complaints.

Our client served as a secretary and bailiff to then-Common Pleas Judge Tim Horton,and  has agreed to settle her claims in exchange for $22,000 from the county and $23,000 from a self-insurance program for Ohio judges.

A taxpayer-funded liability-insurance program for judges recently approved Horton’s portion of the settlement. The fund is administered by the state Department of Administrative Services.
