Do I have a claim for sexual descrim. against a deep-pocket client who sexually harassed me and then severed our contract when I refused his overtures?I agreed in writing to organize and promote a newly created nonprofit foundation for its president, a young and wealthy trust-fund kid in Manhattan. He said lots of dirty jokes during our meetings. Referred to "dating me." Specifically told me, "don't ever sue me for sexual harassment." Each time, I made it very clear his comments were unprofessional and not appreciated. Until one day he accelerated the work due deadlines and asked me for all my work product ahead of schedule. He then claimed that "the organization doesn't have any more money to pay you." Since he was the organization's sole donor and funded everything, it was very clear to me that by refusing his overtures, he decided to cancel my contract. There was never any comment about my work or that he ever had a problem with it.
