If Forest City Ratner has any information about sexual harassment claims against a former executive, it has to disclose it, a New York state appellate court ruled.

In 2012, Stephanie Bonadio filed a lawsuit against former Forest City exec James Stuckey, who also used to serve as dean of New York University’s Schack Real Estate Institute, claiming he sexually harassed her when the two both worked at NYU.

Now, Bonadio is trying to find out if any Forest City employees ever filed similar complaints against Stuckey, according to Capital New York, and the court agreed that the company has to fork over any information it has. Stuckey abruptly left Forest City in 2007, according to the website.

In the suit, Bonadio claimed her career suffered because of the harassment, the New York Daily News reported at the time. She alleged that Stuckey urged her to perform a sex act, the newspaper reported, and harassed her when she asked about an upcoming promotion. [Capital NY] — Claire Moses
