Please consider the following fact pattern:
Sally, a fifty year old female, is a female soccer coach at a local community college. Jimmy, a twenty-five year old man, is a candidate for an assistant coaching position. Based on his qualifications, Sally hired Jimmy. After six months, Sally and Jimmy developed a romantic relationship while on a road trip. After months of sexual encounters, Jimmy broke up the relationship because his college-aged girlfriend found out about Jimmy’s relationship with Sally.
After that, Jimmy started discussing his relationship with Sally with a number of his friends at a local college pub and posted some nude photos of Sally on an internet website. Soon, rumors about the relationship spread across the college. Then Sally confronted Jimmy about the situation. Sally threatened to terminate Jimmy’s employment with the school based on his behavior. In response, Jimmy told Sally that if she terminates him, he will sue her and the school for wrongful termination and sexual harassment. Jimmy and Sally worked together for another three months, when Sally quit after the season. A month later, Sally sued the community college and Jimmy for hostile work environment, sexual harassment and constructive discharge.
Assess the merits of Sally’s claims and any defenses that Jimmy and the community college may raise.
