Dallas, TX asked in Sexual Harassment for Texas

Q: Do you handle sexual harassment cases? I was sexually harassed by the captain of a yacht owned by PR based company.

The captain lives in PR and was employed by the yacht company which is registered in PR. This happened at end of June. I live in Texas and was part of a travel club. The organizer contracted with the yacht company for the boats. Was in the British Virgin Islands when it occurred. In one instance he reached over and kissed me on my cheek while helping me out of the dingy he was operating. He also was under the influence of alcohol while doing so. There were witnesses including his first mate. I need to know if I would file cause of action against yacht company and individual in PR jurisdiction?

A: Yes, I suppose you could file a pro se lawsuit in PR--or anywhere else--but there is no cause of action.
