Finally some good news for Dov Charney.
A Brooklyn judge ruled on Tuesday the $250+ million sex slave lawsuit brought on by former American Apparel employee Irene Morales will be handled in arbitration, rather than open court.
The case has been on hold since March of last year when the judge ordered a hearing to decide whether or not it can go on since Morales signed an arbitration agreement when she quit in 2010.
Charney's lawyer Stuart Slotnick said of the ruling:
"The court granted our motion in its entirety and we expect the case to be dismissed in arbitration. The claims are bogus and frivolous and we expect they will be dealt with accordingly."
Morales' lawyers haven't decided whether or not they're going to appeal the decision, but if you ask Dov he thinks "it speaks for itself".
