Vasquez v. Empress Ambulance Serv., Inc., 15-3239

In a suit brought by an emergency medical technician who was subjected to unwanted sexual overtures by another employee while on the job, the District Court's dismissal the case, holding that the retaliatory intent of plaintiff's co-worker, a low-level employee, could not be imputed to employer and that employer consequently could not have engaged in retaliation, is vacated where agency principles permit the retaliatory intent of employer's co-worker to be imputed, as a result of defendant's alleged negligence, to defendant.
