A French court ruled this was a work-related accident and held his employer liable, but what does the panel, including retired judge Mary Chrzanowski, think of this ruling?

Judge Mary also notes that in most states adultery is a crime, and she questions if an employer should be held responsible for something that occurs while an alleged crime is being committed.
