Woman Who Alleged Harassment by Journalism Venture Founder Settles Suit


A former employee of Los Angeles-based Zocalo Public Square who sued the cultural and nonprofit organization, alleging she was forced to resign in 2019 because the founder and former publisher harassed and discriminated against her, has reached a settlement in her case.

Plaintiff Claire Krelitz’s allegations included wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination and various state Labor Code violations. She sought unspecified compensatory and punitive damages in the suit filed in December 2020 in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Lawyers for the parties told Judge Bruce G. Iwasaki during a July 14 status conference that a resolution of Krelitz’s case was reached, but no terms were divulged. Defense attorneys denied any wrongdoing on the part of their clients and maintained that Krelitz was not entitled to any damages.
