May 9, 2024

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Debra Katz and Kayla Morin issued a statement regarding a disclosure from the D.C. Mayor’s Office on settlements reached with the District about substantiated claims of former Deputy Mayor John Falcicchio’s sexual harassment of employees.

“We are precluded from discussing any settlement in the matter regarding John Falcicchio and our clients. We want to again praise the courage of our two clients who came forward to expose both Falcicchio’s sexual harassment and the significant flaws in the D.C. government’s sexual harassment policy that allowed his behavior to go unchecked for too long. Their efforts, and the good that they did, led to significant policy changes in the D.C. government that we that we hope will improve the working conditions for city employees in the months and years to come.”
