    Seems like sexual harassment claims and assaults are popping up left and right these days and they are finally appearing in the gaming community starting with IGN:

    That HR department is deplorable. I want to cry reading that.

    The letter is such a cop out and barely shows them feeling responsible. It's them trying to act like victims because "they are in pain, OH, BUT NOT AS MUCH AS THE WOMEN."

    It is disappointing that it took so long for IGN to deal with the problem, and their employees need to strike for IGN to deal with IGN sexual harrassment problems.

    IGN is a USA based company right? All the lady had to do was go over HR's head and file a complaint with her city/state government agency and they would have been all over IGN's asses about this.

    It's a major USA based company, that's what we all know.
    Because of that, it could be possible that they're protected by the law, and therefore unstoppable unless loads of women come out about this.
    Think Hollywood; it took the American 'justice' system multiple decades to act, despite them knowing very well about this all along.

    I agree she could of come out sooner and told her local government, and may of not let this situation got out of hand where she had to feel uncomfortable at work which made her have panic attacks, and change jobs. Plus, it may improve her court case if she decides to sue IGN since less evidence like security camera footage, and call records like voice calls and text may of been deleted or destroyed. There would also be more witnesses who may still be working for IGN or remember what happen to her if she came out earlier.

    if you got the money or backing, anyone can drag anyone out in a court of law.

    There are also court shows like Judge Judy which may help her out for free with finding an answer to her problem, so money is not always needed.

    yeah no, Judy is more of a pop star these days. She judges more on her mood than the actual law. If you want good help, go to the People's Court show.

    If you want help the People's Court is a better choice.

    But, I think Judge Judy maybe more popular worldwide, and get more views online on sites like YouTube and on Television.

    If the IGN female employee mainly want to warn the public of IGN and some male staff mistreating female friendly employees, Judge Judy can be the better choice. Judge Judy maybe more popular with YouTube, Reddit, Tumblr, and other big social networking members, and meme makers which use these sites, and there would be a good chance that social network members will upload a ton of videos, pictures, and meme about this sexual harrassment case to warn more people of IGN's dark past of sexual harrassment.

    I think sexual claims against a large corporation is bigger than a small claims court like Judy though.

    Are you people actually suggesting these women should have dealt with this by going on a reality tv show?

    I agree small claims court can be too small against a large corporation. But, going to a bigger court like a state or nationsl court may cost a lot of money for the victim who needs to hire a team of lawyers, and private investigators to gather evidence like video and voice recordings, and cell phone records. There is a chance the victim don't receive enough money to pay off the legal fees and other expenses if they win, or no money if they lose.

    I think going on a Court TV show is not the best way to deal with their harrassment case if you have money or the governmemt can pay for your lawyer.

    But, a court show is better than not dealing with their case at all, or coming out many years later where the sexual abuser maybe dead or physically ill, or IGN gets sold to new owners, or shutdown where there is no one to sue.

    Sometimes people don't go to court if they can't afford the legal cost, and afford to not work, and take many months to years off from work to go to court.

    A lot of online workers for alternative news websites don't make a lot of money, so there is a chance they cant afford to hire a lawyer, or take many years off work to go to court.

    Steve Wilkos Show is also still on the air. Steve Wilkos was Jerry Springer Security Guard, and substitute host on Jerry Springer on the show until he left to create his own show.

    Steve is also a former US Marine Soldier, and Police Officer with the Chicago Police Department according to Steve Wilkos - Wikipedia .
