Hospital Supervisors Pressured Doctors To Visit Strip Club, Lawsuit Claims


Over the last decade, companies have paid out millions of dollars in sex discrimination suits when business has mixed with topless pleasure. But a new case out of Maine falls into more of a legal "gray area," according to an employment law expert, and reported by The Portland Press Herald.

Every year, residents at the Maine Medical Center attend the Northeast Sports Medicine Conference in Rhode Island and, as part of the festivities, they allegedly spend one night at a strip club getting semi-naked women to writhe on their laps. Patrick O'Brien, a male administrator, says that he complained about the practice and is now suing the hospital for allegedly retaliating against him.
