A former U.S. Postal Service employee in South Carolina can depose fact witnesses in-person in her sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit, after a federal court ruled rejected the renewed contention that the witnesses ought to be deposed virtually because of Covid-19.
Mail carrier Kanzora Robinson sued in December 2018. She said Eastover, S.C., postmaster Kertina Epps retaliated, culminating in her termination, when she complained that a male co-worker was sexually harassing her.
Robinson sought live deposition testimony from Epps and other witnesses, but the USPS objected.
