Where's the one place on earth that you can totally talk trashy while at work? Yes, probably the set of a porn movie. And at a strip club. But, another place is in the writer's room of a sitcom. This week, the California Supreme Court rejected a sexual harassment claim by a former assistant against the writing staff of Friends. In a unanimous ruling, the court decided the assistant was not harassed, supporting the rights of the writers to have raunchy, profanity-laced conversations all in the name of the creative process.
