employee, claiming sexual harassment by a BET cameraman.
Dorman claims that during an editing season in February 2009, Clarke repeatedly replayed video footage of Dorman’s rear-end.
She was bothered by Clarke’s actions, and when Dorman asked why he was doing so, the complaint states, “Clarke grabbed and repeatedly rubbed his crotch, began to moan, and said it was because he loved her butt, that she was sexy and that she did not know what he was going to do to her.”
Ms. Dorman notify her supervisor, and was told she would never work with Clarke again. However, Clarke was assigned to work with Dorman for a segment with Nicki Minaj in November 2010.
Dorman later complained to Human Resources about the incident, and also revealed news that she was pregnant.
She claims following an investigation of the Clarke matter, the then five-month pregnant Dorman was fired by BET, which she claims the company told her they were “going in a different direction.”
Dorman is seeking monetary damages, unlawful termination, discriminatory practices, and lawyer fees, claiming her firing was “both retaliatory and based on her gender, including her pregnancy.”
