A Portland employee is suing the city, claiming she was sickened by a co-worker’s scented fragrance.

The lawsuit from Bureau of Maintenance worker Julie Reynolds seeks $50,000 in damages.

She has a condition called “multiple chemical sensitivity” that can be triggered by the smell of perfume or hand lotion.

Reynolds says she was sickened after an exposure in 2011 and could not return to work for several days.

A lawyer for the city told KGW it would not comment on the lawsuit.
