The Nagasaki Prefectural Government said Tuesday it would not appeal a court order that it be ordered to compensate an American woman for sexual harassment while she was an assistant language teacher at a high school in the prefecture.
Since the court recognized that prefectural authorities had acted appropriately when the incidents came to light, the prefectural government decided to comply with the Nagasaki District Court decision to award Hannah Martin 500,000 in damages.
Martin, who is in her 20s, said she suffered mental anguish due to sexual harassment by a vice principal and an assistant language teacher in separate incidents in 2016 and 2018. She has decided not to appeal, which is the deadline for filing a challenge to the ruling, her lawyer said Tuesday.
