Walter James Palmer

$127,500 sexual harrassment payout


Tammy Brevik receives a $127,500 settlement after she sues Palmer, claiming he sexually harassed her when she worked for for him in his Minneapolis dental practice from 1999 to 2005.

I believe my sex was a factor… in that many of Dr Palmer’s comments concerned my breasts, buttocks and genitalia. I also believe that my termination was in retaliation for reporting the conduct because I was terminated the day my lawyer contacted Dr Palmer regarding the harassment.

Palmer denies any wrongdoing but agrees to the payment. He is ordered to take a jurisprudence exam and complete an ethics course.
