RENO– The lawyer for a female with a sexual harassment suit against the city of Reno says its “awful” for the city lawyer to ask his client to list any work environment enthusiasts she may have had in the previous 18 years.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Deanna Gescheider’s lawyer Mark Mausert has actually asked Reno City Lawyer Karl Hall to withdraw his demand, arguing that it violates federal evidence guidelines.
Mausert states Hall’s demand crosses the lines because he’s requesting for details on Gescheider’s personal life before she was a city employee.
Hall declined to talk about the pending litigation.
Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve called Hall’s demand “highly unsuitable.”
Gescheider and Maureen McKissick’s preliminary grievances led termination of former City Supervisor Andrew Clinger.
Both females are previous city employees.
