WellPoint Insurance Exec David Colby and WellPoint Sued for Sexual Battery by Sarah Waugh


As reported to Scared Monkeys.com by Larry Garrison, The NewsBreaker, Sarah Waugh is suing WellPoint Insurance former executive David Colby for sexual battery. The complete complaint for damages are as follows:

Complaint of damages for sexual battery, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and negligence.

 A California woman who claims she had an intimate affair with former WellPoint Inc. executive David Colby has sued him and the insurer, alleging Colby committed sexual battery while carrying on relationships with more than 15 women since 2004.

One wonders just how bad this scandal truly is when one is forced to resign as David Colby eventually was by WellPoint. However, how long did WellPoint know what was going on prior to any action being taken. The law suit reads like a Peyton Place instead of an insurance carrier.

Indianapolis-based WellPoint, the nation’s largest insurer, forced Colby to resign May 30 as chief financial officer for an unspecified violation of the company’s conduct code. Troughton would only describe the violation as “nonbusiness” and nothing illegal.

Since Colby resigned, The Wall Street Journal and several other newspapers have detailed Colby’s romantic entanglements. Larry Garrison, president of California’s SilverCreek Entertainment, said he is negotiating a book-movie deal with several women who claim they were involved with Colby.

Garrison said Thursday he’s talked to more than 20 women who claim relationships with the executive.

“Every day I’m getting calls, it’s unbelievable,” he said. (Journal & Courier)

Sarah Waugh has brought this particular law suit; however, after reading about the sordid affairs and spending of corporate dollars to finance Davis Colby’s alleged infidelities, its only a matter of time before stock holders take notice. How long will it be before a lawyer represents the WellPoint stock holders for misapropriation of funds?

The lawsuit states that WellPoint employees arranged personal and business travel for “various women” with Colby and “in many cases, high-level WellPoint employees traveled with Colby and the women.”

It also claims Colby has had “concurrent relationships” since mid-2004 with more than 15 women, including Waugh’s sister, Jessica. She traveled with him and other company employees to conferences and investor meetings in London, Paris and Amsterdam, according the lawsuit.

      How can the COMPANY be responsible in any way for what he did? Sounds to me as if they’re looking for deep pockets.

      A company can be responsible for the corporate culture that they allow to take place. Colby was the former CFO of WellPoint, that positions holds just a little power.

      If a corporation knowingly allows certain practices to occur, they are deemed liable. If people were fired or threatened to intimidate others to not talk. A CFO acts as an agent of the company and thus thus company then assumes liability. Happens all the time.

      If you own a business, check in your insurance policy, more and more insurance companies are adding coverage for sexual harassement. Companies have been held liable for their employees actions for eons, whether condoned or not.
      If these acts were taking place at the business location or in a business enviroment, such as hotel (convention), courts will deem the action took course while employed, that the person was acting in the capacity of the employee.

      Sounds like a scorned woman who didn’t have the emotional/intellectual ability to behave as an adult.

      She loved every minute of the relationship and likely behaved with pride as she strutted around with her beau.

      She had no sense of self responsibility.

      This woman is a skank and everyone should note that. The company will be held liable for his actions. She likely now knows she won’t get much from him due to his paying for 15 other women at the same time. She should get checked out because she likely got something “extra” from him.

      I was lucky to meet David last year in SF.

      I think David is a good man, good father, smart, care about what he doing, responsible.

      Common guys, he was the one running Bluecross to its success in the corporate world, very stressful and let him enjoy and relax in his personal life, he is single, wealthy, powerful then many women chasing him, he has all the right to date multiple women at the same time and sleep with them if they willing to take a chance to be with the top excecutive of US. Every single women that dated him was hoping he would marry her someday and do whatever it takes to capture his heart and intimate is one of the thing that included. Love, sex and money come in the same package!

      I agreed with Wartario2, she must loved every minute of it and now turn around to hurt him and his career, shhhhh.

      David is a acceptable man, leave him alone, the higher position they are the harder to be completely happy.

      This is ridiculious, obviously this woman is looking for a way to seek more $. What 22 year old dates an old man anyhow????? This woman is a filthy pig as is he…. you get what you deserve…

      Women were not chasing him. Come on he looks like a deform troll. He was seeking sugar babes online. That is how I met him and started a relationship with him. I did get a few big checks from him. I will not reveal my name because I am a public figure in the broadcasting field. David colby is not the man he tryed to make everyone believe.

      Interesting article. I’ve been going through many sites learning about home insurance and related topics. I think men should be able to apply for sexual harassment insurance in case their careers are ruined by a faulty accusation.
