Manhattan: a 'crazy, insane place'
The secretary, Michelle Mauro, also claimed that Herbert Waichman of New York firm Parker Waichman e-mailed her pornographic images and planted kisses on her, reports the New York Post.
She went on to tell Nassau County Court: ‘It was a crazy, insane place. I just wanted out of there.’
The secretary added that 64-year-old Mr Waichman said: ‘Don’t let me have to get my whip! Don’t let me have to whip you. Stop being a bad girl. I’ll get my whip!’
Ms Mauro moved from Parker Waichman last year when Andres Alonso - a former partner at the firm - and lawyer David Krangle left to set up a rival law firm. Parker Waichman sued the three, claiming that they poached clients and stole its business model.
