UPDATE: Angelina Pivarnick has reached a $350,000 settlement in her sexual harassment lawsuit against the City of New York, E! News confirms.
The Jersey Shore star told E! News in a statement, “I said when the case was filed that it had nothing to do with television or entertainment and that remains true. Sexual harassment is serious and has devastating consequences for so many women. It has for #MeToo. Although I experienced horrendous treatment at EMS, I’m pleased with the resolution of my case and I look forward to using my voice to speak about the need to protect all women from sexual harassment.”
The New York City Law Department also confirmed the sum she will receive, with a spokesperson sharing, “The FDNY takes allegations of sexual harassment seriously. Ms. Pivarnick’s claim was fully investigated, and the appropriate corrective action was taken. This settlement was in the best interests of the city.”
