Former #PaulAllen Bodyguard Cites “Rampant Mistreatment, Sexual Harassment and Illegal Activity”

from seattlepi.com: After years of acrimonious litigation, Vulcan Inc. has made onetime Paul Allen bodyguard Tracy Turner pay. Turner was among 15 former bodyguards to leave the Seattle Seahawks owner’s firm claiming rampant mistreatment, sexual harassment and illegal activity. Unlike the rest, Turner will have to pay her former employers $45,000 for their trouble. A bodyguard with nearly two decades in the industry, Turner made allegations in line with those from her former colleagues – chiefly that Vulcan as led by CEO Jody Allen was ethically bankrupt-- when she sued the firm in 2011. The others, her boss included, settled with Vulcan or prevailed at arbitration. Turner, though, lost her case before a private arbitrator after her attorney quit abruptly and she was denied time to hire a new lawyer. Broke and without counsel, Turner tried to drop the matter but the arbitration went on without her.
