According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by Prime Lab and was supervised by Gordinho. She alleges she was subjected to sexual harassment and a hostile work environment by Gordinho. The suit states the plaintiff and the rest of the staff at Gordinho's office were terminated when the office was "raided" by state and/or federal workers in November 2015.
