TAMPA — Prominent Tampa lawyer Barry Cohen is tangled in a legal battle with former employee and lawyer Natalie Khawam.
She's suing him, his law firm and other defendants on six counts, including sexual harassment and breach of contract.
Cohen said the firm dealt with the issue immediately, hiring a retired FBI investigator, Bob Cromwell, to look into the allegations. Cromwell said in an interview he spent about two weeks interviewing employees, including Khawam.
Shortly after the investigation was completed, Cohen told Goldberg in a Dec. 2, 2009, letter that he was prohibited from returning or having "any further contact with any female employees."
Khawam submitted her resignation that same day.

The purges have begun, God help us.
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”
“The challenging thing for Gen. Petraeus,” she stated, “is that in his new position, he’s not allowed to communicate with the press. So he’s known all of this – they had correspondence with the CIA station chief in Libya, within 24 hours they kind of knew what was happening.”

Question regarding all the removing of generals... With all these replacement generals (and there are a lot), doesn't it seem like it would weaken us which would be a great time for an attack? Especially if this consulate wasn't a consulate but a point for supplying guns!!! Sounds like a perfect storm in the ME.
There are some people thinking something big might happen. Could this be it... an attack or the start of another war?!
And if so, is it Mossad? We seem to be getting played here.
One thing is for certain - General P. resigning is just the surface.edit on 11-11-2012 by six67seven because: (no reason given)edit on 11-11-2012 by six67seven because: (no reason given)
