115m payout after boss hits woman with genitals

A US federal jury in Illinois awarded US$95 million (NZ$115.7m) to a woman who said she was the victim of a sexual harassment campaign.

She claimed her boss hit her on the head with his genitals before allegedly throwing her down on a couch and masturbating on her chest.

Ashley Alford, who worked in a branch of Aaron's Inc - a nationwide chain of rent-to-own furniture stores - should receive US$15 million in compensatory damages and US$80 million in punitive damages, the jury in the Southern District of Illinois concluded after three days of deliberations.

Her attorney, David Ratner, said he believes the award is the largest ever in an individual sexual harassment case. However, legal limits could reduce the award to $US43 million.

Chad Strickland, vice-president of associate resources for Aaron's, said the company vowed to appeal the verdict.

"Aaron's is extremely disappointed with the jury's verdict and believes that the award does not accurately reflect the evidence that was presented in this case," he said in a statement.

Strickland said that the alleged acts by store manager Richard Moore were inconsistent with "everything our company believes in and stands for and outside the scope of Moore's employment".

Alford was 20 when she was hired in 2005 at the store in Fairview Heights, Illinois. She left in 2006 and sued Aaron's in 2008.

Moore's attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.

"should receive US$15 million in compensatory damages"
rest is punitive, which is pretty subjective. Just wondering who came up with a 15m figure to 'compensate' for getting teabagged?

Totally. Compensation is meant to be "Sorry you missed work because this fucked you up, heres money for therapy and booze to cheer you up" not "heres more money than you're even worth"

I wanna know how he managed to hit her on the head with his genitals before throwing her on the couch.... he's either got a massively long donga, or did some kind of leaping somersault donga head shot technique - impressive either way....

('part from the sexual assault bit of course....)

i think the point is that 100k is not a huge blip on the radar of big companies, and they want companies to be motivated to prevent this sort of thing, so they hit them in the wallet. It's an insurance company that will actually pay out if anyone does I would have thought?

Just for the record, what he did was fucking terrible but I'd gladly be hit in the face with someone's genitals for the rest of my life for 40 hours per week if I could get 115 million dollars.

Some days it feels like the massive dangling genitals of the universe itself are savagely and repeatedly slapping against your unprotected face.

She must not have minded too much if she let him take the time to blow a load on her. Something not right.
