After more than a week of sordid testimony, lawyers for New York Global Group CEO Benjamin Wey and Swedish stunner Hanna Bouveng made their final pleas Friday before a jury of four men and four women in Manhattan Federal Court.
Wey’s defense lawyer Glenn Colton kicked off his closing argument by saying that there was inappropriate conduct on the part of both Wey and Bouveng.
Benjamin Wey's attorney Glenn Colton gives closing statement Friday( above). “Both sides behaved badly. There’s no way around that,” Colton said. “Nothing about this case is nice.



David Ratner ( below) gives closing statement. “This is not a ‘he said, she said,’ case,” Ratner told the jury. “It’s about retaliation, it’s about humiliation, it’s about intimidation,” he said.

NY Jury Gets Ex-Intern's Stalking Case Against Financier

Law360, New York (June 26, 2015, 7:34 PM ET) -- A New York federal jury begin deliberating Friday whether financier Benjamin Wey is liable for sexual harassment, a campaign of stalking and vicious public attacks on former intern Hanna Bouveng, asking for evidence about his alleged demand for “tangible love” from the 25-year-old Swede in exchange for her job.

The four-woman, four-man jury got the case just before 3 p.m. after a trial that lasted 10 days. Within 90 minutes jurors had fired off two missives to U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardephe.
