Yes, the Right to Sue means you have 90 days from the date of the Right to Sue to file your lawsuit. It can be filed by you (called filing pro se, without a lawyer) or you can search for attorneys to file it for you. I would not rely on finding an attorney - you should be mindful of the filing...

Q: Can I sue an attorney I worked for that blatantly sexually harassed me on a daily basis? It was in 2019-2020.

I do realize that I have proof of it. Also, I have been seeing a therapist, and it has come to light that many of my anxiety issues are related to this abuse. I was not the only paralegal he abused either.

The statute of limitations in Ohio for sexual harassment that occurred before April of 2021 is six years, so you can still pursue a claim. The statute of limitations under federal law (Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act) is 300 days.

This is most likely a scam aimed at trying to scare you into giving them money. That said, while the age of consent in Ohio is 16, an adult who engages in a sexual relationship with a minor is taking big legal risks. First, any pornographic images of the minor are highly illegal child pornography.... View More
