Jury gives $450,000 to fired executive By Ken Schultz Herald Staff Writer A former CTB/McGraw-Hill executive in Monterey who was fired from her $125,000 a year job was awarded $450,000 by a federal court jury for wrongful termination. The jury of three men and five women in federal district court in San Jose also ruled the former Macmillian/McGraw Hill School Publishing Co. acted in bad faith when Judith Ann Hill, 41, was fired on June 10, 1993, from her position as vice president of finance. In her lawsuit, Hill said that Peter Jovanovich, president and chief executive officer of what is now McGraw Hill School Publishing Co., owned by The McGraw-Hill Companies, flew to Monterey from corporate headquarters in New York to personally fire her after she complained of being sexually harassed by him. Jovanovich told Hill at one point that "he wanted her to be his moll," said Novato attorney Nancy Krop, who represented Hill. When Hill protested, "basically" that was the end of her career" with the company, Krop said. Hill had also accused the company of sex discrimination and Jovanovich with sexual harassment in her lawsuit, but the jury ruled against her on those points, said company spokesman Steve Weiss. The $450,000 judgment against the company, which later in 1993 became The McGraw-Hill Companies, was the maximum award allowed, Krop said. "I think the company had to learn you treat people more humanely," Krop said yesterday. Weiss said the jury award was likely the result of the company's failure to give Hill written warning that her job was in jeopardy before firing her. Even so, "We do believe that we have a very valid basis for appealing the jury's decision," Weiss said. He added that the company hasn't decided whether to appeal. Hill, the mother of two college-aged daughters, began her career as a $17,500 senior accountant and rose in 11 years to become the chief financial officer of the company's CTB division in Monterey, earning $125,000 a year, Krop said.

"Incidentally, the local blogs have been tearing Jovanovich apart for a sexual harassment charge dating to 1997 when he was the chief of McGraw-Hill School Publishing and was accused of telling a female executive that “he wanted her to be his moll.” The woman claimed she was wrongfully terminated after protesting Jovanovich’s entreaty, and a jury awarded her $450,000. At this point Sack must be thinking that, short of getting struck by lightning, he can’t possibly lose this race." http://www.lohud.com/article/20130907/COLUMNIST08/309070074/Phil-Reisman-Archie-exec-running-Rye-puts-positive-spin-puerile-patter

Mrs. Silberkleit, Can you please tell us what your position is regarding Mr. Jovanovich's past involvement in his sexual harassment case and if you believe it will impact his position as Mayor in Rye should he win?
“There was also about $17,000 paid in rent.” $17,000? The rent for the entire building at the Rye Record was only $24,000 a year. Sounds like the ALFRED HARCOURT FOUNDATION was picking up most of the tab for Rye’s # 1 newspaper. Where is the IRS when you need them?

This is so wrong, I had to rewrite it again. It is evident; in addition to Peter’s Peter problem he has many others. Here is a 2012 sample of what I believe Jovanovich lists as his only job. ALFRED HARCOURT FOUNDATION INC Physical Address: 14 Elm Place Rye, NY 10580. Does this address sound familiar? It should. It's the same address as the Rye Record. EIN:13-6084636 (914) 481-5346 2012 Compensation: Peter Jovanovich $4,000 Scholarships awarded in 2012: CUNY Hunter College $159,000 College of New Jersey $167,000 Xavier University of Louisiana $3,750 Baruch College $0 CUNY Staten Island $4,000 City College of New York $0 Roger Williams University $0. This totals $333,750 in scholarships for four schools. And the administrative and operating expenses for all this work? A whopping $171,000. This includes about $80,000 for "Other" professional fees. I wonder who got this money? There was also about $17,000 paid in rent. I wonder if this was part of the rent the Rye Record paid to its landlord at 14 Elm Place? It must be a tough job for Jovanovich to award these scholarships to four whole schools because Jovanovich needed $1,000 for Cablevision (14 Elm Place?), $3,000 in office maintenance (14 Elm Place?), and $2,700 in office supplies (14 Elm Place?) It seems it takes Jovanovich an entire year to award $333,500 in scholarships to only four schools and this costs $171,000 in administrative and operating costs.

By PETER LANE from the SSR What do Peter Jovanovich, Scott Pickup, Joe Sack and snow in August all have in common? If you allow me the political equivalent of poetic license, I will attempt to make the connection. Outgoing Councilman Peter Jovanovich, whose term ends this coming Dec. 31, has announced his intention to seek an independent line so that he can challenge Councilman Joe Sack, the Republican candidate for the post of Rye’s mayor, thereby seeking to extend the reign of outgoing Mayor Doug French, whose term also ends this Dec. 31, and the continuing city employment of Rye City Manager Scott Pickup. Now, I assume that most of us who follow Rye City politics know that: a) Jovanovich is a Doug French guy; b) Pickup is a French and Jovanovich guy; c) neither French nor Jovanovich had a prayer of becoming the Republican nominee for mayor; d) French, Jovanovich and Pickup have made it crystal clear they want Sack anyplace else in the world but on the Rye City Council, let alone on that council as the city’s mayor; and e) Sack has made no secret that he disapproves of French’s‑and Jovanovich’s‑governance of the city and that he is no fan of Pickup’s performance as city manager. Okay, so far Peter Jovanovich’s candidacy looks like an attempt to garner some payback for French, keep Scott Pickup running Rye post-January 2014 and to thwart Sack and his “Rye United” team‑which includes candidates for City Council Kirstin Bucci, Terry McCartney and Julie Killian‑come Election Day this November. But, you may rightfully ask: Where does the snow in August allusion come in? Before I explain my rhetorical device, let me, in the interests of full disclosure state that, while I enjoy cordial personal relationships with Doug French and Peter Jovanovich, politically I stand firmly in the Joe Sack camp. Further, I, along with the very same Joe Sack, am a candidate for district leader in Election District 9 in the Sept. 10 Republican Party primary. Finally, Joe’s other political supporters and effective running mates in this Sept. 10 esoteric exercise‑Rye Republicans, please mark your calendars and hang on to a copy of this column‑that I’m about to describe are: Andrew Dapolite and Diane Tolve in Election District 2; Daniela Vitiello in Election District 3; Grace Nemarow and Al Vitiello in Election District 4; Bob Cypher and Angela Sculti in Election District 8; and Jim Flick and Bill Soviero in Election District 13. Now, it seems that a small handful of Republicans actually support Doug, Peter and even Scott Pickup and believe that Peter, as “Doug Redux,” and Scott should continue to plot Rye’s future and run our city. This handful of disaffected GOPers was unable to stop the vast majority, myself included, of the Rye Republican City Committee‑the official body of the local Republican Party‑from nominating Joe and the rest of the “Rye United” team as its candidates in the November general election. They couldn’t even come up with alternative candidates to present to the committee, or to oppose its ticket in Republican primaries for mayor or city councilmembers. So, they have decided to attempt to take over the Rye Republican City Committee on Doug’s, Peter’s‑and, indirectly, on Scott’s‑behalf by running Republican primaries on Sept. 10 for the political posts of district leaders in six out of a total of 14 of our city’s geo-political subdivisions known as election districts. The district leaders‑officially known as Members of the Westchester Republican County Committee‑from their respective, election districts are the folks who compose the Rye Republican City Committee. All political parties are entitled to have their own respective local committees. Now, if you’re still with me, I will tell you where the snow in August comes from. In Rye, Republican primaries, particularly those for the political posts of district leader, are as rare as, you got it, snow in August. Okay, I admit that going from Republican primary to snow in August is a bit attenuated, but, in my defense, what kind of a title would “Peter, Scott and Joe and Republican primaries for district leader in six of Rye’s 14 election districts” have made? Peter Lane retired as the Rye City court judge and an acting Westchester County Family Court judge at the end of 2009 and is now, among other things, a political consultant.

Maybe, If I would of given into sexual advances, I may not of had to go thru all of this? Maybe my salary would have been increased to $250.000.00? It was only a matter of laying down a few times a month. In her lawsuit, Hill said that Peter Jovanovich, president and chief executive officer of what is now McGraw Hill School Publishing Co., owned by The McGraw-Hill Companies, flew to Monterey from corporate headquarters in New York to personally fire her after she complained of being sexually harassed by him.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA (SAN JOSE)CASE No. C93-20824RMW Judith A. Hill V. Jovanovich/ McGraw-Hill 8. (a) In April 1992, JOVANOVICH began working for MACMILLAN McGRAW-HILL. (b) At that time, JOVANOVICH began subjecting plaintiff to unwelcome physical contact and verbal sexual harassment, and continued with this behavior throughout plaintiff;s employment with MACMILLAN McGRAW-HILL. (c) Such unwelcome physical contact and verbal sexual harassment included: TO BE CONTINUED:
Mr. Zahm, Named in at least six additional suits by former stockholders, Mr. Jovanovich's company defended a case where investors were misled about the financial position of the company. The suit also claimed that false information was distributed by executives that violated securities law and artificially inflated the value of the company's stock as they strapped the company with nearly $3 billion of debt at the same time. This suit has nothing to do with Ms. Hill's claims of sexual harassment. Now I ask you, would you have someone handling your personal money and running your business that was involved in these types of issues? I don't think so and it is my guess that most of the residents in Rye would feel the same way as I do about having that same person serving as a trustee of our city. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1992-03-13/business/9203130427_1_preferred-stock-suit-jovanovich
Mr. Zahm, I feel this has everything to do with issues that are now and have been on the front pages of every newspaper in town, including the spin from the Rye Record that the Deputy Mayor and his wife own. Are you aware in that very same case, Deputy Mayor Jovanovich’s company paid out approximately $450,000.00 in damages for wrongful termination? Isn’t that what the Dapolite case was all about? Wasn’t the reprimand placed in Andrew’s file, the beginning? http://www.kroplaw.com/win_hill.html I understand from the victim’s attorney that there was one holdout on an eight-member federal jury - a gentleman in his 70's - who declined to find for the victim on the sexual harassment claim that would have entailed statutory attorney fees in addition to the award. That’s seven to one, that is pretty good odds, wouldn’t you say? They did prevail on a breach of implied employment contract cause of action. Ms. Hill’s attorney also stated that his client in that case, Judy Hill, is a very hard-working, professional, and level-headed woman.
