A former employee who previously lost a sexual harassment lawsuit against her employer has now lost a bid for a new trial.

Recent case: Jacquelyn quit her job after allegedly having to work in a sexually hostile environment. She claimed one of her bosses had shown her pornographic images on company computers, among other things.

The trial court would not let her show the images that were recovered from the computer system. A jury concluded she had not been harassed and Jacquelyn appealed, arguing she should have been able to introduce the images.

However, the appeals court tossed her case, concluding Jacquelyn had been unable to prove that the images she sought to introduce were the ones she had seen on the computer. (Bliss v. Central States Insulation, Court of Appeals of Minnesota, 2017)
