That is SO last week - August 2015

Last week, the world mourned Cecil the Lion, and all eyes were on the Minnesota dentist who killed him.  The scrutiny of the dentist unearthed, among other things, a sexual harassment complaint lodged against him by a former dental assistant.  The media swooped upon the former assistant, who had settled her claim for $127,500 and a non-disparagement provision.  In an interview, she said “Karma is a b**h – that’s all I have to say.”  Employment attorneys picked up on this statement and wondered “Is it ‘disparaging’ to say ‘Karma is a b**h’?”  The dentist remains in hiding, so we’re all left to wonder whether he will sue his former employee for breaching the settlement agreement.
