Cook County Jail Sexual Harassment

M&S represents a putative class of women who work at the Cook County Jail in their sexual harassment claims against the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and Cook County, Illinois. The women have experienced pervasive sexual harassment by detainees, including exhibitionist masturbation, groping and threats of sexual violence, and their employers have failed to take reasonable steps to prevent and end the extreme sexual harassment. The case is filed in federal court in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
