Facts

For 21 years, Maryann Favale (plaintiff) worked for Saint Joseph’s School as an administrative assistant. In November 2002, Sister Bernice Stobierski became the interim principal. In May 2003, Stobierski became the full-time principal. Favale has alleged that Stobierski subjected Favale to severe and repeated sexual harassment between December 2002 and June 2003 by touching her inappropriately, making sexually suggestive comments, exhibiting lewd behavior, and requesting physical affection. Favale reported this conduct to her employer, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport (the Diocese) (defendant). Favale sued the Diocese for sexual harassment, retaliation, defamation, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, negligent hiring, and negligent supervision. Favale moved to compel Stobierski to testify to any prior treatment for anger management and psychological or psychiatric conditions. Favale also moved to compel the Diocese to produce any records related to any such treatment of Stobierski.
