Lucio Lanza has been sued by startup founder Rachel Danae Vachata, 29, who alleges a drunken Lanza groped and sexually harassed her in the summer of 2017 after sitting next to her on a red-eye commercial flight.
Three additional women who have told the Mercury News they were sexually harassed by Lanza, 73, who runs a venture capital firm in Palo Alto.
The women described strikingly similar incidents in which Lanza groped them suddenly and without permission in public settings.
The three women all worked in a tech sector in which Lanza is among the most important funders.
Naturally, Lanza denies any inappropriate behavior.
However the evidence seems to indicate he’s pretty much a drunken sex criminal.
