Swedish woman gets $18M in sex harassment suit against boss

30 June 2015, 10:37

New York — A jury has awarded $18 million to a young Swedish woman who sued her former Wall Street boss for sexual harassment.

Monday's decision came at a Manhattan civil trial where Hanna Bouveng accused Benjamin Wey of using his power as owner of New York Global Group to coerce her into sexual encounters before firing her after discovering she had a boyfriend.

She testified that he also launched a smear campaign through the Internet, depicting her falsely as a prostitute, extortionist or drug user, and wrote vicious emails to her friends and family.

Wey claimed he never had sex with her and that she squandered a golden opportunity to make it on Wall Street by embracing a New York nightclub scene that left her too hung over and tired to succeed.
