Alexander v Community Hospital of Long Beach
MPG Law wins $2.8M for clients in suit over harassment by openly gay supervisor
Two former nurses at Community Hospital of Long Beach, Judy Alexander and Johann Hellmannsberger, each believed that they were being subjected to harassment and discrimination by an openly gay male nurse. Ms. Alexander and Mr. Hellmannsberger retained our firm to argue their case that their supervisor subjected them to a hostile work environment by flaunting his homosexuality, giving preferential treatment to homosexual males and by having a disdain for women. Our clients were fired from their positions in 2009.
In November, 2009, we filed suit at the the Los Angeles Superior Court and in August, 2016 the jury found for our clients, awarding them them $1.4 million each.
