  • 3 Women Sue Charlie Rose and CBS, Alleging Harassment

The lawsuit, filed in New York Supreme Court, alleges that Rose habitually made sexually suggestive comments and engaged in inappropriate sexual contact with the three employees.

After Rose was sacked, the lawsuit alleges that Wei filed a complaint against Kadro with CBS' director of human resources, Maria Cottone. "I had been there long enough to know that it was just the way things went", said Sophie Gayter, 27, who said Rose groped her while they walked down a hall. According to the suit, Rose would invite Harris and McNeal out for dinners, and then sexually touched them on their thighs and kissed them on their cheeks.

A lawsuit was filed Friday in the Charlie Rose sexual harassment case.

Harris says she once wore a mini-skirt with roses on it, and the ex-"CBS This Morning" anchor said they were HIS roses.

The suit alleges that Rose would also berate the three young staffers, calling them "idiots", and questioning their abilities.

CBS News President David Rhodes has said publicly there "was not knowledge" of Rose's alleged sexual harassment.

The retaliation component of the lawsuit stems from Wei's account that she was removed from her position as an anchor assistant several months after she filed a complaint with CBS human resources on November 30, just days after Rose was sacked.

In the suit, Ms. Wei, an assistant, said she expressed concerns previous year to the current executive producer of "CBS This Morning", Ryan Kadro, about the amount of attention that Mr.

According to the suit, Rose fired both Harris and McNeal after the first Washington Post article was published. According to the lawsuit Rose wrote in a letter to Harris offering her a job on his show, saying "I want you to be at the center of my professional world....", "You help me get through the day", "we will celebrate" and "I look forward to the most exciting year of our lives".

Harris claims she was wined and dined by Rose while working as a broadcast associate for one of the CBS morning shows, discussing potential job opportunities for Harris at "60 Minutes" or on Rose's eponymous show. The lawsuit says that Wei's health suffered as a result of her experience with CBS.

Since Rose was sacked, CBS News said it has taken steps to ensure a safer workplace, including mandatory misconduct training.

Rose did not respond to an email seeking comment.

The suit also accuses Mr. Kadro of harassment, saying that at one point past year he "kicked and shoved Ms. Wei's chair with substantial force, startling, intimidating and scaring Ms. Wei". CBS "did not investigate the complaint, and did not take any remedial action", the lawsuit alleges. Rose and Mr. Kadro shortly after Mr.

The suit claims that the network reached out to Ms. Wei and Ms. Harris in March "to deter plaintiffs from pursuing claims". She is now on medical leave, according to the suit.
