Last week, Natalie Thorpe, 31, a woman formerly employed by outsourcing company Williams Lea filed a sexual harassment lawsuit accusing a former supervisor at the law firm of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, of having sexually harassed her, and when she did not comply to his demands, he gave her negative performance reviews.

According to the lawsuit, the alleged incidents took place in the mail room of the law firm office, which was manned by outsourced workers among regular employees of the law firm.

Thorpe alleged that she worked at Cadwalader as an employee of Williams Lea, the outsourcing company, and her supervisor at the law firm, Tyrone Turner, made sexual advances and also sent her an illustrated, laminated, erotic poem describing his fantasies.

The lawsuit alleges Tyrone’s poem contained lyrics like “I love the way you giggle and the way your body jerks when I trace your tattoos with my tongue and rub you down with warm body oil.”

The ode apparently ended with the line “I am at your erotic disposal.” The lawsuit says, the poem was decorated with the picture of a man kissing a woman, and the woman resembled Thorpe.

Other objectionable lyrics in the poem, as alleged by the lawsuit, include, “I enjoy you so. Your thick legs and all of the voluptuous plumpness that accents your womanhood …”

Thorpe alleges that her supervisor tried to kiss her in November 2010, then locked her in his office and demanded that she have sex with him. The lawsuit mentions, “Turner also told Thorpe … depending on whether she agreed to go out with him, things could go well for her at work or not so well.”



Turner left his job voluntarily in 2011, but before that he gave negative performance reviews of Thorpe.

The NY Post interviewed Tyrone, but the married Queens dad said the accusations against him were “ridiculous.” His explanation was that he was a bard and he does poetry and distributes their copies to many co-workers. He also told the NY Post that Thorpe was not an object of his desire.

Michelle Bodick, a spokeswoman of Williams Lea said “We believe that this claim has no merit …”
