In Kaisman v. Hernandez , after Dr. Arden Kaisman -- a pain-management doctor -- was accused of engaging in "sexually inappropriate acts," his business partner resigned from the practice and offered jobs to existing employees.
In April 2007, Kaisman was sued for "sexual harassment in a hostile work environment," assault, and battery.
Although he admitted to sending several inappropriate e-mails and a sexually explicit video, in October 2007, Kaisman turned around and sued his former partner and employees for "intentional infliction of emotional distress," "prima facie tort, as well as a derivative cause of action for loss of services."
When the New York County Supreme Court dismissed Kaisman's case, he appealed to the Appellate Division, First Department.
The AD1 was of the view Kaisman couldn't have suffered any injury or harm since he was the one who engaged in workplace related misconduct.
Has he got time for the pain ?
