The Worst of All Worlds - Recanting of Management Witness Comes Too Late, But He Still Ends Up Convicted of Perjury


Sometimes things just don't work out. After Forest River, a manufacturer of recreational vehicles was hit with a $320,000 sexual harassment verdict, one of its management employees who had been accused of the harassment changed his story. Although during deposition and trial he denied any sexual relationship, after the verdict he admitted that he had a consensual affair with the plaintiff. The judge unfortunately did not believe him, refused to set aside the verdict and referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney for an investigation of possible perjury. Last Monday, the story was completed when he pled guilty to perjury. The eTruth, the on line site of the Elkhart, Indiana Truth has the story. Actually, since sentencing hasn't occurred, probably too early to say the story is complete. Not too early, to say it is a pretty strange tale.
