A Galveston County jury has awarded $567,000 to a former deputy constable who was allegedly sexually harassed by his female boss.
Matranga denied pulling her blouse over Gist’s head, but said she did it to other deputies. “If anybody was in a bad mood, like if Phil was in a bad mood, I would say, ‘Phil,’ or to anyone, ‘Do you need to go under the shirt?” she testified in a deposition.
She said in the deposition that she did not “shirt” Gist because he found the behavior “creepy.”
Two former employees also testified that Matranga often put other employees “under the shirt,” incessantly used profanity and constantly made references to her body parts. Matranga was dropped from the lawsuit, leaving only the county responsible for the damages.chron.com
The mind boggles.
