When the Plaintiff told the Hearthstone CEO of her pregnancy, he allegedly
responded by telling the plaintiff to be cautious because "babies can remember things while in the womb", and that [the CEO's] mother had a sexual affair with another man while she was pregnant with him and that he could still remember the trauma.I think I'll remember the trauma of just reading that for awhile.
The discovery for this case should be fascinating. I'll try to keep an eye on this one. After all, I would love to read a court's analysis of whether a "negative force field" is a legitimate nondiscriminatory reason!
