Matthew Bowen, 28, is suing the San Francisco-based software company and its former CEO
Fernand Sarrat in California Superior Court alleging, in one of six separate claims, that he was the
subject of "quid pro quo" sexual harassment and sexual assault by Sarrat. The complaint also
alleges that Linuxcare created a hostile environment in which sexual harassment could flourish, that
the company retaliated against Bowen when he complained about Sarrat's alleged harassment and
that it failed to prevent discrimination or harassment in its workplace. The story is at UpsideToday.com.
