(REALUOSO.COM) – Famed lawyer, Mark Geragos and his L.A. law firm, have just filed their third employment suit against Zillow in the last month, this time representing a former employee who alleges sexual harassment, and a fostering of an “adult frat house culture.”

The federal lawsuit accuses leadership at Zillow of “despicable and inappropriate sexual conduct” when she worked there, alleging that she received explicit text messages, and even an email containing a sex toy advert, was propositioned for sex, hit on, and even sent a text message containing a picture of a coworker’s penis. No compensation demands have been made yet, and Zillow has not yet responded in court.

Geragos alleges that his client was fired and forced to sign a confidentiality agreement after standing up for herself. He dubs his client’s treatment as “sexual torture,” which he asserts continues at the company even today.

“Zillow management routinely and unapologetically subjected [my client] to despicable and inappropriate sexual conduct throughout [her] employment,” said Geragos.
