GANAN v. MARTINEZ MANUFACTURING

United States District Court, N.D. Illinois


Quatrini Ganan,
v.
Martinez Manufacturing, Inc.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: PHILIP REINHARD, District Judge

ORDER

After reviewing the Affidavits set forth in Plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgment, it is the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge that Defendant, Martinez Manufacturing, Inc. ("MMI"), pay Plaintiff Ganan $167,642.00, Plaintiff Quatrini $67,077.00 and further award Plaintiff's $59,730.00 in attorney's fees and $2,419.68 in costs. A break-down of these awards follows.

Of the two plaintiffs, Ganan demonstrated that she was subjected to more egregious conduct than Plaintiff Quatrini. For example, in addition to the lewd comments, gestures, and requests alleged by both Plaintiffs, Plaintiff Ganan also demonstrated numerous instances of unwanted physical contact and one particularly offensive incident where MMI Vice President, Richard Martinez exposed himself six inches from Plaintiff's face. Thus, it is recommended that Plaintiff Ganan be awarded $67,642.00 in back-pay, $50,000.00 in compensatory damages, and $50,000.00 in punitive damages; and that Plaintiff Quatrini be awarded $57,077 in back-pay and $10,000 in compensatory damages.

  The Magistrate Judge also recommends that Plaintiffs be awarded $59,730.00 in attorneys' fees and $2,419.68 in costs based on Attorney Hollander's 144.5 hours at the rate of $365.00 per hour; Attorney Madden's 15.75 hours at the rate of $235.00 per hour; Attorney Sidkey's .5 hours at $235.00 per hour; and a law clerk's 42.25 hours at $75.00 per hour.
