Following the announcement of HP CEO Mark Hurd’s departure, the attorney of Jodie Fisher, the contractor who made the sexual harassment claim against him released a statement from her client.

Fisher had the following things to say:

"I was surprised and saddened that Mark Hurd lost his job over this. That was never my intention."

"Mark and I never had an affair or intimate sexual relationship. I first met Mark in 2007 when I interviewed for a contractor job at the company."

Mark Hurd Resigns as HP CEO "At HP, I was under contract to work at high-level customer and executive summit events held around the country and abroad. I prepared for those events, worked very hard and enjoyed working for HP."

"I have resolved my claim with Mark privately, without litigation, and I do not intend to comment on it further."

"I wish Mark, his family and HP the best."

Attorney Gloria Allred added, "My client is a single mom focused on raising her young son. She has a degree in Political Science from Texas Tech and was recently the vice president of a commercial real estate company. She formerly worked on the House Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control. She has also been a successful salesperson for a Fortune 500 company and has been in various television shows and films, some of which were R-rated when she was in her 30’s. Most recently, Jodie was one of the stars in an NBC television show called ‘Age of Love.’ Our office does not plan to have any further comment."

There you have it.

HP CFO Cathie Lesjak has stepped into the CEO role on an interim basis as the company commences with its search for a new CEO.

    I don’t get it. Jodie whatsherface *didn’t* have a relationship or affair with the guy and they found there was no sexual harassment…..

    So why did she even sue in the first place? ‘Cos she thought she might get a quick payout?

    Which she obviously did as “resolving it privately” just means “settled out of court to avoid legal fees”.

    “I was surprised and saddened that Mark Hurd lost his job over this. That was never my intention.”

    So the intention of filing the claim was what exactly?

    What script are you reading from lady because in the real world, a claimed file, whether true or not is likely going to lead to the person the claim is made against having their career ruined or a shadow forever cast over it.

    Nice work brainiac, you’re just the kind of person I would like to hire, to work for someone else I don’t like.
