LAS CRUCES, N.M. – A federal court in New Mexico recommends granting a woman $20 million in a sexual harassment case against C3 Pipeline. The woman, employed to lay a crude oil pipeline, says the foreman of the crew forced her to perform sexual favors to keep her job.

The court finds the award is not excessive given the “reprehensible conduct” of the company’s employees and the injuries suffered by the woman, who was afraid to kiss her children out of fear she had contracted a disease from her supervisor.
