Same-sex sexual harassment: Americas Next Top Problem? Fri, 11/19/2010 - 09:25 MorelliRatner
On November 8th 2010, Morelli Ratner PC filed a civil complaint against former Americas Next Top Model judge Nole Marin and Runway Beauty, Inc., for sexual harassment against a young, aspiring male model, Nicholas Alex Hammam-Howe. The case illustrates both the on-going problem of the casting couch in the fashion industry and the heretofore largely invisible problem of same-sex sexual harassment.
The story has been picked up by the New York Daily News and bloggers across the fashion industry, but coverage thus far has not addressed the pervasiveness of a problem about which most Americans are not even aware. A Newsweek magazine article from earlier this year discusses some of the challenges to effectively dealing with male-on-male sexual harassment in the workplace. Predominant among them may be the common cultural idea of sexual harassment as exclusively a problem of male perpetrators and female victims. As David Grinberg, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission spokesman notes in the article, While some people may think sexual harassment of male employees is a joke, the issue as real. We are seeing more of it, and such conduct has serious legal consequences for employers. Indeed, what both male-on-female and male-on-male sexual harassment have in common is the exploitation of power differences in the workplace, for the gratification and self-aggrandizement of the more powerful party. As Krista Gesaman notes in the article, it was only in 1998 that the U.S. Supreme Court recognized that sexual harassment can occur between individuals of the same sex. While Gesaman writes that between 1992 and 2008, the percentage of sexual-harassment charges filed by men with the EEOC doubled from 8 percent to 16 percent, she explains that It's also possible that same-sex harassment is not on the rise, but that male victims feel more empowered about reporting abuse. However, the Newsweek article discusses only a limited subset of sexual harassment cases and does not address the problem of quid pro quo sexual harassment, the casting couch problem with which we are here concerned.
In the case filed against Nole Marin, Alex Hammam-Howe details the methodical manner in which Nole Marin explicitly and repeatedly offered to help launch Mr. Hammam-Howes modeling career...if Hammam-Howe would consent to sex. This quid pro quo sexual harassment is illegal but unfortunately all too common.
Here are the facts of the case, as alleged in the complaint:
In approximately September 2007, Hammam-Howe was introduced to Nole Marin. Marin told Hammam-Howe that he would make a great model, and the following month, Marin photographed Hammam-Howe, then arranged for Hammam-Howe to be photographed in his swim suit and underwear by a well-known fashion photographer. That month, October 2007, Marin contacted Hammam-Howe to express his approval of the photographs and asked Hammam-Howe to come to his home so that Marin could take more photographs of Hammam-Howe to show prospective clients. After Hammam-Howe arrived, Marin told him to undress, so that Marin could photograph him in his underwear. According to the complaint, Defendant NOLE MARIN also commented admiringly about the size of Plaintiffs penis, remarking: Its huge. As the complaint continues,
During the course of this session in approximately October 2007, Defendant NOLE MARIN also repeatedly touched Plaintiffs torso, waist, hips and thighs, purportedly to enhance his pose for the photograph. Moreover, Defendant NOLE MARIN repeatedly brushed against and fondled Plaintiffs penis with his fingertips while pretending to adjust him in his underwear. Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWE constantly fended Defendant off, informing him: I can do it myself.
Defendant NOLE MARIN thereupon reached inside Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWEs underwear and grabbed his penis, announcing: I just want to suck it! Plaintiff was shocked and repulsed, and pushed Defendant NOLE MARIN away, shouting: That is not what I want to do!
Marin then responded, Its a very sexual industry. This industry is all about who you know and what theyll do for you. Thats just how it is. Hammam-Howe put his clothes back on and left, and did not hear from Marin again for two-and-a-half years.
In March 2010, Marin texted Hammam-Howe, informing him about a lucrative Armani advertising campaign he could be part of. Beginning with this text, Hammam-Howe continually made clear to Marin that he was interested in the modeling work but not interested in Marins sexual overtures. According to the complaint, during a photography session on or about March 9, 2010, Defendant NOLE MARIN represented that he planned to feature Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWE regularly as a model in RUNWAY MAGAZINE, and further represented that he wanted Plaintiff to appear with him on his reality TV shows. During this session, despite having made clear at the outset his disinterest in Marin sexually, Hammam-Howe again had to fend off Marins aggressive unwanted advances and groping. In text message conversations in the days that followed, Hammam-Howe continued to follow-up to see if Marin had submitted the photos on his behalf to Armani, while Marin began again to tell Hammam-Howe that he could only get work if he consented to sexual contact with Marin. The text message electronic paper trail, detailed in the complaint, speaks for itself:
28. On or about March 10, 2010 at 12:41 p.m., Defendant NOLE MARIN texted Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWE:
Hey, There (sic) lots of guys wanting to model and lots trying to be with my agency and work with me. I only make the best and you know that. Your body is great... Its (sic) a lot of money and fame we are talking! Id been (sic) gave it all to you! But you say no for the 4th time and I should just move on I guess
29. On or about March 10, 2010 at 12:41 p.m., Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWE replied:
I understand but as of yesterday u (sic) said u (sic) were going to send my pictures to armani fragrance, why r (sic) u (sic) changing your mind? Say no to what for the fourth time?
30. On or about March 10, 2010 at 12:46 p.m., Defendant NOLE MARIN texted in response:
Hahaha wowo (sic) you dont (sic) get it at all! Yes i (sic) sent you last night! And 3 guys end of last week! But to take you to the top its because i (sic) want to. And I asked you over and over if your (sic) ready like the other (sic) and you said yes im (sic) totally ready! I see you werent (sic) like before
31. On or about March 10, 2010 at 12:49 p.m., Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWE responded to Defendant NOLE MARIN via text:
So for me to make it to the top with you and your influence all I need to do is let you give me a blow job?
32. On or about March 10, 2010 at 12:52 p.m., Defendant NOLE MARIN texted his reply: Yes... But you passed! All good!
33. On or about March 10, 2010 at 1:24 p.m., Plaintiff NICHOLAS ALEX HAMMAM-HOWE texted Defendant NOLE MARIN: I definitely want the campaign.
34. On or about March 10, 2010 at 1:28 p.m., Defendant NOLE MARIN responded via text:
Then come now to meet me! And Ill shoot very little and do that and by friday youll be very happy
Finally, reads the complaint,
In direct retaliation for Plaintiffs refusal to submit to Defendant NOLE MARINs unwanted sexual advances, Plaintiffs prospective employment with RUNWAY MAGAZINE and with various advertising campaigns was abruptly terminated.
The complaint lists five causes of action against Marin, including assault, battery, the intentional infliction of emotional distress, and quid pro quo sexual harassment, as defined under New York State and City Human Rights Laws. http://www.morellilaw.com/our-blog/same-sex-sexual-harassment-america%E2%80%99s-next-top-problem
