Suit is dismissed first in New York State Supreme Court, then in Federal Court.

Tetragon LLC announced today that the $10 million lawsuit brought by Kathryn Fjeld has been dismissed in both New York State and Federal courts.

The suit, which alleged sexual harassment and retaliatory discharge against IBM, Isogon, Tetragon, Robert Barritz, Steven Barritz, Per Hellberg, David Vardi, Steven Youchnow, and Peter Kassan, was first brought in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County, from which it was dismissed on May 3, 2006, by Justice Jane S. Solomon.

Subsequently, another suit, with nearly identical allegations, but now asking $50 million in damages, was brought against IBM, Isogon, Tetragon, Robert Barritz, and Steven Barritz. This suit was moved to Federal Court, from which it was also dismissed, on January 18, 2008, by Judge Colleen McMahon.

The recent dismissal from Federal Court was "with prejudice", and, therefore, none of the allegations may be brought again.

No monetary payment or settlement of any kind was made to Ms. Fjeld by any of the parties named in her suit.
