Nicole Rock claims that she was “forced to endure horrific sexual acts” and harassment by Taubman that included repeated sexual comments, innuendos, unwelcome sexual advances, physical touching, and other offensive conduct of a sexual nature.
In the complaint, Rock describes the sexual harassment that she endured from Taubman as being the following: brushing against Rock’s breasts without her consent on numerous occasions, grabbing Rock’s head and forcefully kissing her on the mouth without her consent on numerous occasions, tearing the buttons off of Rock’s shirt “in an attempt to get to her breasts” without consent, and forcefully grabbing Rock’s crotch and tearing a hole in the crotch of her pantyhose.
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. Her direct supervisor allegedly informed his boss, Kevin Malloy, about Rock’s allegations, but Taubman allegedly did not stop the harassment. Instaed, Rock claims that Taubman continued and escalated his harassing behavior.
In February 2011, Rock went on disability leave due to the extreme stress, anxiety, and depression that she had been experiencing because of Taubman’s alleged harassment.
