Skip to comments.All claims dismissed against Paula Deen in employee lawsuit
Posted on 08/23/2013 2:35:15 PM PDT by Libloather
According to court documents filed in Savannah, Ga., all claims against the TV chef have been dismissed in the suit brought by former restaurant manager Lisa Jackson, with no award of costs or fees to any party. Jackson had sued on the grounds that the work environment at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, owned by Deen and her brother, subjected employees to sexual harassment and racial discrimination.
The news comes two weeks after a federal judge threw out the lawsuit's race discrimination claims, stating that though others may have faced that discrimination in the restaurant, Jackson could not sue since she was not one of the victims. Friday's agreement was filed with prejudice, which means Jackson cannot refile the lawsuit.

I never suggested she was a hero.
This woman got her revenge. But prolly won’t get hired in another business.
Hope it was worth it for her.
“10 years from now the media will still be saying...”
Nobody really gives two shiites what the media say. With any luck, in ten years the media as we know it today (i.e. biased, hateful, liberal lap dogs) will be nothing but a footnote in some dull book, as will the race pimps and their ilk. I believe we pigmentally-challenged people are about fed up.
Now that the damage has been done —
You have a good point.
Might even call it Karma.
I remember Howard Cosell. No one praised and loved black athletes more than Cosell. One slip and he was gone. Karma.
Im not interested in defending the rights of a liberal Dimocrat”
...Bravo. My thoughts exactly.
The way Deen handled this in the public was pathetic. I wasn’t a fan either way with her. Now I am not for sure. She is a lib as well so ....bye bye Deen!
Law and Order SVU should have a sequel show called Law and Order SUV, where all the crimes are committed by people driving sports utility vehicles.
I predict she will rise from the ashes like the Phoenix....and thumb her nose at her detractors when she again hits the Big Time and the Fortune 500 in the not too distant future.
We must never forget that famous quote from the Bible, or was it Shakespeare.....or Ben Franklin?....or maybe it was Scarlett O'Hara: "The South will rise again, y'all"
She was a libtard, who showed her true colors, and then begged for the equivalent of conservative compassion.
Too bad for what happened to her - but she must remember who turned on her first, her libtard friends
Sounds like the dems have been right all along, we're not really the party of tolerance that we claim to be........LOL!
Kinda like a pick and choose conservative cause that will benefit me and screw the rest of them...........
Hey, wise up. What goes around, comes around. There is nothing intolerant about that. It’s a fact of life.
Sleep with the dogs and you get fleas. That be the way it is.
“Kinda like a pick and choose conservative cause that will benefit me and screw the rest of them...........”
My honest feelings are more along the lines of schaudenfreud.
The Paula Deen thing for me was like this girl I knew in school who hung with the people who made my life hell and then one day they made HER life hell. True, she hadn’t done anything to me personally but at the same time I didn’t care that they turned on her.
This year I saw a movie on TV where a human had betrayed humanity to some alien. The alien says to the human, “Did you think that by helping us we’d hate you any less?”
And then the alien killed the human.
That’s what’s on my mind with Paula Deen.
And I’ve never thought ‘Screw her’ because she screwed herself by picking the wrong friends.
Reading between the lines this was an out of court settlement. Dean paid Jackson so she would dismiss the case and release any claims.
Paula was an Obama supporter, right? I think it would be great if she COUNTER SUED the racist who brought the suit, but at this point WHO CARES?
Speaking of drive-by posters, everyone say ‘Hi!’ to Leni!
