Man Wins Sex-Harassment Suit Against Boss

Sat., Aug. 12, 1995

A former insurance company employee who claimed his boss grabbed his crotch and kissed him on the neck won a rare lawsuit alleging male-on-male sexual harassment.

A federal jury ruled in favor of Ford W. Prescott on Wednesday, but Prescott settled with his former employer and supervisor for an undisclosed amount before the jury began considering damages.

Prescott, 43, was staff supervisor in the Montgomery office of Independent Life and Accident Insurance Co. of Jacksonville, Fla., before he was fired by his boss, Tommy Lee Meeks, in 1993 after 13 years with the company.
