You may remember reading in our past two issues about the Pittsburgh TV station employee who allegedly swiped e-mail and documents left on employees’ desks as evidence for a discrimination lawsuit. A federal court ordered her to return the documents.
But the court didn’t tell her how it wanted her to return the documents she took when she cleaned out her desk at KDKA-TV. So, she sent them back shredded.
Her former employer wasn’t amused. KDKA is seeking jail time for contempt of court for the former administrative assistant.
