Dov Charney's Sex Slave Lawsuit Heads To Arbitration

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".

Former American Apparel Employees Sue Dov Charney AGAIN

Another day, another lawsuit for Dov Charney.

Three former American Apparel employees, who are suing the CEO for sexual harassment, filed another lawsuit alleging defamation against Charney and company photographer Kyung Chung.

The lawsuit filed on Tuesday said Irene Morales, Alyssa Ferguson and Tesa Lubans-Dehaven suffered "emotional distress, invasion of privacy and impersonation online" after three fake blogs were created in their names.

The NSFW sites (which are still live) feature nude photos of the accusers, emails and text messages allegedly sent to Dov as well as admissions of extortion.

We viewed the sites a while ago and couldn't help but notice some of the emails look really shady and/or fake.

All three are seeking damages.

Irene Morales, the woman suing Dov Charney for sexual harassment amongst other things, appeared on the Today Show on Monday.

Her response?

She thought those kind of things were normal in the fashion and retail industry!

Awful.

Brooklyn Judge Halts American Apparel Sex Suit

Looks like luck may be on Dov Charney's side once again.

A Brooklyn judge slammed the breaks on the $250 million sexual harassment lawsuit against American Apparel and ordered a hearing to determine if it can continue.

As AA mentioned in their response, ex-employee Irene Morales signed "an agreement to submit any future claims to confidential binding arbitration" when she quit last year.

Charney's lawyer Stuart Slotnick added Irene "brought this action after making a number of extortion-like threats to expose the company to a threatened avalanche of litigation and negative publicity".

Umm, did he forget who he's representing? The only publicity American Apparel and Dov have ever known is negative!

Slotnick also asked the judge to sanction Morales for bringing "frivolous litigation".

Her lawyer Eric Baum, on the other hand, maintains that the arbitration agreement is "improper and unenforceable."
