Lawsuit Alleges Harassment, Neglect at Petco

Former employee, Catherine Lindblom, of the Petco store in Novato has filed a lawsuit against the store and its manager, alleging sexual harassment, wrongful termination and retaliation. She is seeking restitution for emotional damages and punitive damages. Lindblom says she was fired because of complaining about sexual harassment and abuse and neglect of animals. According to the lawsuit store manager James Armlin began to hug Lindblom, rub her shoulders from behind, and make suggestive comments. Over the next few months he repeatedly touched her on the buttock, brushed against her breasts and caressed her hand, Lindblom says, unwelcome advances that made her feel uncomfortable and humiliated. Lindblom also states finding many cases of animal abuse and neglect, including starving rodents and cages that had not been cleaned in several days
