Tonique Griffin v. City of East Orange (A-32-14; 074937)

Tonique Griffin v. City of East Orange (A-32-14; 
074937) 

The trial court erred when it barred the testimony of a witness who claimed that her superiors instructed her to lie to the person investigating sexual harassment claims because the testimony was relevant to plaintiffs’ claims for compensatory and punitive damages arising from hostile work environment sexual harassment, satisfied an exception to the hearsay rule, and its relevance was not substantially outweighed by the risk of undue prejudice.
