Bloomberg lawsuit alleging rape, drugs mentions news editors
A lawsuit against Bloomberg L.P. by a former sales person who claims she was drugged and raped by her superior mentions two news editors, reports Kevin Dugan of The New York Post.
Dugan writes, “Ferris wasn’t the only person to harass the woman, it is alleged. At a 2012 Christmas party at the home of Executive Editor Ted Merz, a second editor, Joe Brusuelas, made ‘lewd comments’ and propositioned her to leave in a ‘private car,’ according to the suit.
“[This reporter worked at Bloomberg under Merz from 2012 to 2014 and was present at the above-mentioned Christmas party. The reporter left early and didn’t witness any of the behavior described in the complaint.]
“Brusuelas, who’s no longer at Bloomberg, declined to comment.”
Dugan later reports, “Merz, who was in Nicaragua when reached on his cell phone on Friday, said, ‘I don’t have a comment and I don’t know anything about it,’ before hanging up on a Post reporter.”
