Maybe her former lawyer is safer ground? A couple of days ago we mentioned that Lorenzana hired Gloria Allred. But yesterday news surfaced about the lawyer Lorenzana fired, Jack Tuckner. Dealbreaker claims that Debrahlee might have just fired the perfect man for her case:
Specifically, Lorenzana says that she was told not to wear pencil skirts or stilettos. And while Tuckner may be the creepiest lawyer of all time, it turns out he has deep knowledge of this sort of footwear (and the other accoutrement that might fill out the ensemble), and how its presence in the corporate world can only enhance business, such as when a stilleto is shoved up one’s ass.
Yeah, it turns out that Tuckner is no stranger to sexual harassment claims…
The New York Post reports:
In June 2008, Manhattan women’s-rights lawyer Tuckner was sued by his former office manager, Lisa Brockington, who claimed in court papers that he watched porn at his desk and wore a “slave” collar at work. Her suit called him a “self-described ‘testosterone-poisoned’ attorney with a penchant for bondage and sadomasochism who demeaned . . . the women who worked for him.”
Wow, you know what that sounds like? A potentially cognizable sexual harassment claim — as opposed the “people were bedazzled by my plastic bustline” BS that Debrahlee is running around with.
Whoops, there I go again, making fun of this modern-day paragon of feminism. Let’s get back to Tuckner. The Village Voice — the paper we should all hold accountable for making Debrahlee famous in the first place — reports that Tuckner’s former office manager eventually withdrew her lawsuit:
Tuckner denied Brockington’s allegations, and said, “As far as we know, there is no connection between the unattributed reports concerning the Brockington case and Ms. Lorenzana’s retaining new counsel. The Brockington matter was voluntarily withdrawn by Ms. Brockington months after it was filed.”
That makes sense. One would think that a sexual harassment lawyer would be smart enough not to sexually harass his own employees.
But then again, Tuckner did take the Lorenzana case — so perhaps he does like his practice to be close to the edge.
