EEOC moves to DQ country club's lawyer from sexual harassment case

(Reuters) -

The commission in a filing in federal court in San Diego on Friday said that Bay Club Fairbanks Ranch LLC’s general counsel, Mark Koorenny, will be deposed and called to testify if there is a trial in the 2018 lawsuit alleging rampant harassment of female employees, and that would interfere with his ethical obligations in representing the club in the case.
