Brown Bag Presentation by Iris Halpern: Sexual History Questions Under FRE 412

  • 13 Feb 2017
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • 2701 Lawrence St., Denver, CO 80205

Think all that questioning about sexual partners or activities is allowed in discovery? - It's not. How the Federal Rules of Evidence and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure can protect your client in a sexual harassment case.

In many sexual harassment cases, defendants delve into the employee’s sexual history even though it is often times irrelevant to the parties’ claims and defenses. In this presentation, Iris Halpern will review the Federal Rules of Evidence and Civil Procedure as they relate to discovery of a victim’s sexual history. Ms. Halpern will focus on F.R.E. 412, which generally prohibits the discovery or and use of evidence related to the plaintiff’s sexual behavior or predisposition. Ms. Halpern will review common discovery issues that arise in these types of cases, including deposition questioning and discovery of electronically stored information, and provide a way to object to these questions under the federal rules. 

Join us for a PELA Brown Bag presentation and roundtable discussion led by Iris Halpern of the EEOC.
