Ex Jet Gets Sued


Recommended Posts



May 16, 2007 -- A secretary says she was done a poetic injustice when her ex-Jet boss made her type out an ode to the male organ.

The poetry-of-the-penis incident was one of several instances of sexual harassment to which Tania Padro says she was subjected while working at Cambridge Corporate Services in lower Manhattan.

Padro is suing the company, which is run by sportscaster and former Jet star John Dockery, for $300,000, claiming she suffered "economic damages and emotional injuries" from her four months working there.

"She was rather traumatized by her treatment there," said her lawyer, Walker Harman.

A lawyer for Cambridge, which specializes in staffing for mailrooms, declined comment, saying he hadn't seen the suit.

Padro said she was the only woman working in the office when she was hired this past January, and soon found herself forced to endure a locker room-type atmosphere.

Staffers subjected her "to . . . sexual harassment on a daily basis by simulating graphic sexual acts in Ms. Padro's presence," the suit charges.

Harman said Dockery told Padro to type up the poem, which included the lines, "It used to be embarrassing, the way it would behave. For every single morning, it would stand and watch me shave."

She quit soon after, the suit says.

Dockery was a defensive back on the 1969 Super Bowl champion Jets.
