I was appalled about this situation! I know Gail, worked with her at DSS for a few years and support her completely. I do not know Mr. Courtner; however, I hear from some of his friends that they are appalled by his actions. I am not surprised that this case has taken so long to be brought to justice, the Management in our City and County government had to know what was going on, but the "good ole boys" network is deaf and dumb when it comes to bringing charges against one of their own. Gail put up with this for years and I commend her male counterparts who stood up and testified for her; however, I was disappointed that no other women in the office made the same attempt. Gail, good for you!!!, I consider any money taken from my pockets to pay for the insurance that finally gave you some justice, to be money well spent. The phrase " sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me" failed to be true in this incident and Mr. Courtner, your "words" finally came back, not only to hurt you, but to finally bring justice for a wonderful Christian woman who did her work, fulfilled her duties under extreme stress until she could no longer do so. I hope other women will stand up for themselves and bring this terrible injustice to an end.

Men bullying women in the workplace takes place more than anyone knows. I think it sometimes happens because women will not take these men up on their sexual advances, their ego gets hurt so they lash out at these women.

This shit wouldn't be an issue if women would just stay at home like they're supposed to. Give me a hell yeah if you're down with the Back To The Kitchen movement!

Women have to work to help support the family so this is usually not an option. Some men need to grow up and develop some morals.

There were women that stood up for Gail as well, not just men in the office. I don't know where you get your information from!
