Rock also alleges that Alfred Taubman grabbed her, “pushed her onto his bead in the rear cabin of the plane, forcefully attempted to perform oral sex on her without her consent, and threatened [Rock] by screamingat her ‘I said lay down.'”

Rock claims that she complained to her direct supervisor about the sexual harassment.
