Kilcur Quoted in Article About Handling Sexual Harassment Cases

James F. Kilcur, a Partner in the Labor, Employment, and Employee Benefits Practice Group, was quoted in this article about factors that affect how lawyers handle sexual harassment cases. The article was published almost one week after a former aide sued New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey for sexual harassment.

Mr Kilcur, Co-Chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association's Labor Law Committee, is quoted as saying it is "very common" for a plaintiff's lawyer to try to settle a case before a suit is filed, "especially in sexual-harassment type cases, because often a company may not want to have the adverse publicity" and would rather settle out of court.
