having bedded a number of his female co-workers and issued a public
apology to his wife Regina Lasko on his 'Late Show with David
He approached authorities telling them that he was being
blackmailed to pay 2 million dollars to keep the information out of
the public domain. The alleged extortionist was exposed as producer
Robert Halderman, who was later taken into custody.
And now, an attorney for Halderman requested for a dismissal of
his client"s indictment saying he was “trying to make a
'hard-driven" deal to sell rights to a screenplay inspired by
Letterman's sexually-charged workplace", reports Us magazine.
According to the New York Daily News, lawyer Gerald Shargel
argued Halderman observed that "Letterman had created and fostered
an environment of workplace sexual misconduct that under any
definition amounted to actionable sexual harassment."
