Bringing the Company into disrepute or conduct which could do so is often labelled as gross misconduct. This often results in dismissal of employees for this and normally an associated reason. Even the judiciary is not immune from such actions as this story shows.

Reading between the lines it was not so much the assault itself but the Courts belief that the story advanced did not stack up under close scrutiny.
