The Guardian has published a hard-hitting article featuring two Teukolsky Law clients, Sandra Pezqueda and Jasmin Sanchez. They both formerly worked at the ritzy Terranea Resort, an upscale hotel in Rancho Palos Verdes overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The article describes "a culture that has enabled sexual harassment and sexual assault" at Terranea. Ms. Pezqueda's sexual harassment case settled earlier this year for $250,000. She was named a TIME Person of the Year in 2017 as one of the "Silence Breakers."
Ms. Sanchez's sexual harassment case was filed in July 2018 and is in active litigation. Ms. Sanchez alleges that a security supervisor watched her over the hotel security cameras and sent her sexually explicit text messages. Ms. Sanchez alleges that she complained to Human Resources, which took no action, and that Mr. Harrington later groped her while at work.
