Greenhouse stated that it was the “the most blatant and improper contract abuse I have witnessed in the course of my professional career.” She will be talking about her experience regarding various attempts to silence her ranging from demotions to threats, to eventually being awarded financial restitution in the amount $970,000 in 2011 by the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC. Greenhouse is currently teaching mathematics at NOVA.
