Riot Games settles class action lawsuit over sexist culture
In May, more than 150 Riot Games employees walked out of their offices in Los Angeles. The protest was held to draw attention to what the workers alleged to be a sexist corporate culture, as well as to condemn the forced arbitration of employees who filed a class action lawsuit earlier in the year. Today, the League of Legends publisher announced that "we've come to an agreement in principle to settle the class action lawsuit against Riot." The issues at Riot Games came to the attention of the public last year, after Kotaku published an investigative piece into the alleged sexism; the story included interviews with 28 current and former employees.
The federal lawsuit, which was filed in Brooklyn on Sept. 16, names Lt. Jonathan Schechter and the City of New York as defendants. It includes text messages that Angelina says she received from Schechter while she was working for Emergency Medical Services as an EMT at Staten Island's Rossville Station in 2017 and 2018. "Schechter incessantly subjected Pivarnick to unwelcome sexual advances, as well as comments about her body and physical appearance," the lawsuit states, according to Page Six.
Some of the text messages she claims she received including the following: "Your a-- is amazing and I wish I wasn't working or in uniform because I definitely would've kissed those amazing lips."

Person killed in Bronx construction site collapse: FDNY
A person was killed on Tuesday after a construction site collapse in the Bronx, fire officials said. In addition to the fatality, FDNY Chief of Special Operations John Esposito said five others were injured. Of those hurt, three suffered serious injuries. Fire officials did not immediately release the name of the individual who was killed. More than 100 FDNY firefighters responded to the scene in the Bronx's Norwood neighborhood. At 12:20 p.m., FDNY said on Twitter there was a "major emergency" at 92 East 208 St. "Report of partial collapse of building from 2nd floor one person trapped.
Later, Angelina's lawsuit alleges, the lieutenant "grabbed and squeezed her buttock" in the station's parking lot where he also "made contact with her vaginal area." She insists she made it clear he was not to touch her but said later that day, he texted her again, according to the lawsuit as reported by Page Six: "That a--! If you only knew the thoughts I had in my mind."
The supervisor also allegedly said he'd massage or have sex with her while she was recovering from a back injury and in another alleged text told her, "Just so you know ... I have not f---ed anyone from EMS yet ... let alone the station."
Angelina claims that she was given cleanup duty or other undesirable assignments when she was not friendly to him, Page Six reports.
The lawsuit also alleges that another supervisor, Lt. David Rudnitzky, who is not being sued, "apparently believed that he could speak to Pivarnick at work in sexually graphic and vulgar terms" because of her involvement with "Jersey Shore." According to Angelina, he asked her, "How many guys on 'Jersey Shore' have you f---ed?" On other occasions, this lieutenant inquired about if she'd had sex with her "man" (Angelina is engaged to Chris Larangeira) and told her at work, "Make sure no f---ing today."
Lawsuit accuses Lyft of not protecting its female passengers
A new lawsuit out of California claims Lyft isn't doing enough to protect female passengers. The complaint, filed in the company's home city of San Francisco, includes at least 14 unnamed women who say they were either sexually assaulted or raped by their Lyft drivers. In one instance, a woman says she was raped by her driver after he told her, "I love you." Another says her driver asked her for money and sexual favors, and said, "gratuity is for pocket and yummy is for me." Both women add Lyft did not tell them if it had fired the drivers for their behavior.
The reality TV star -- who is seeking monetary damages for mental anguish and humiliation -- says she made formal complaints and heard from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in March 2019 that her complaints had "credible and corroborating evidence."
Angelina toldin a statement, "I have filed a complaint in federal court because I suffered severe sexual harassment while working for EMS and was retaliated against by my management when I complained internally. It should go without saying that what I experienced has nothing to do with television or entertainment. Like all women, I am entitled to be treated with dignity and respect at work, and I should not have to accept unwanted sexual advances, crude comments about my body, or physical assault. Going forward, at the instruction of my lawyers, I will not be commenting about this case further except as required in court."
A rep for the City of New York Law Department told TMZ that authorities will "respond to these allegations in court."
