Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson Supreme Court of the US, 1986 Facts: Michelle Vinson claimed that she had been sexually harassed by Sidney Taylor, a vice president and branch manager of Meritor Savings Bank. She claimed that during her four years as the bank she had been constantly subjected to sexual harassment. She testified to over 40 instances of sexual favors sought by Taylor. Then she said these activities ceased after she started going with a steady boyfriend. Taylor denied allegations of sexual activity. He contended instead that she made her accusations in response to a business-related dispute. The bank also denied respondent’s allegations and asserted that any sexual harassment by Taylor was unknown to the bank. The district court denied relief because they believed the sexual activity between the two was voluntary. The court of appeals reversed the district court and it was brought to the Supreme Court.
