All claims dismissed against Paula Deen in employee lawsuit
Today ^ | 8/23/13 | Meena Hart Duerson

Posted on 08/23/2013 2:35:15 PM PDT by Libloather

**SNIP**

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.

Companies from The Food Network to Walgreens, J.C. Penney, Smithfield Foods, and Wal-Mart terminated their relationships with Deen, and some experts believe the damage will be lasting.

The least they can do is apologize - publicly.

Doesn’t matter. 10 years from now the media will still be saying “Paula Deen’s racist remarks”

They don’t care and, frankly, I’m not interested in defending the rights of a liberal Dimocrat against the very people she’s supported with her money.

What a flattering photo they used

This woman has some nerve -

“”During a very difficult period in my life the Deen family gave me hope and the opportunity to work to build a brighter future for my family and me,” Jackson said in a statement to TODAY.

“I assumed that all of my complaints about the workplace environment were getting to Paula Deen, but I learned during this matter that this was not the case. The Paula Deen I have known for more than eight years, is a woman of compassion and kindness and will never tolerate discrimination or racism of any kind toward anyone. I now know that the workplace environment issues that I raised are being reviewed and will in the future no longer be at issue. I wish Ms. Deen and her family all the best in all of their future endeavors and I am very pleased that this matter has been now been resolved and can now be put behind us.””

Mark Twain said something along the lines that if you picked up a starving dog and made it prosperous it would never bite you; and that this was the principle difference between a dog and a man (or, in this case, a woman.

I guess if you are a Democrat and a friend of Obama you can get away with anything. She’s still a terrible person, and decent people won’t work for her. In a capitalist society, if you treat workers like dirt, you won’t have any, or you have to pay more.

“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.

How can they let her off when according to the television show Law and Order SVU, she shot Trayvon Martin?

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.

Paula is smart, savvy, a hard worker with an engaging personality.

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"

with no award of costs or fees to any party

So, Deen ends up the loser because of lost income and court costs, and had her reputation impugned by a gold-digger.

Jackson loses nothing, except her time and whatever she paid her attorney (who probably worked on contingency).

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

“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.

PD was railroaded, this has been nothing more than a good old fashioned Jessie Jackson type shakedown. I don't deny that. Nor do I think PD "deserves" it.

Nonetheless, I can't find it in myself to feel all that sorry for a big lib. When you support fascists (who have been ruining our lives for a long time) and they screw you, well, that's just TS.

You understand? I'm not in favor of bad things happening to her. But when she aligns herself with and supports the bad people (which is what libs are) and they turn on her, no, compassion I don't have. I have compassion for the innocent. Liberals are not innocent.

Remember Martha Stewart? The ironies just abound.

I don’t think I’ll be able to keep this up. Just too many instances. I consider this a hate crime against Paula Deen.

I’m starting a list from today to accumulate black on white crimes.

the guy in the white hut seems to be doing a really great job of bringing us all together and I just want to do my part to help out.

I guess this is racis or something. I don’t really care what anybody thinks. It is just the facts.

Here is this week’s entry.

JUST THIS WEEK:

Just for starters. Just this week and the week ain’t over.

5-15-2013 Michael Daniels killed by gang of black youth in knockout game. I had to look a long time to confirm that the little juvenile darlings are black. They are and they will soon be out on the streets again. They were sentenced in “family” court to the lightest possible sentence on 8-23-13. They’ll be back in screwl in Syracuse, NY soon.
http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/knockout-game-victims-eye-kicked-out-of-socket/

8-23-13 Racism related charges against Paula Deen dropped. Jackson, who made the charges gave a bizarre statement after the charges had been refused, with prejudice, by the judge: Jackson, who told TODAY in July that her lawsuit “has never been about the N-word,” but rather “to address Ms. Deen’s patterns of disrespect and degradation of people that she deems to be inferior,” suggested Friday that her issues with Deen had been settled.

“During a very difficult period in my life the Deen family gave me hope and the opportunity to work to build a brighter future for my family and me,” Jackson said in a statement to TODAY.

“I assumed that all of my complaints about the workplace environment were getting to Paula Deen, but I learned during this matter that this was not the case. The Paula Deen I have known for more than eight years, is a woman of compassion and kindness and will never tolerate discrimination or racism of any kind toward anyone. I now know that the workplace environment issues that I raised are being reviewed and will in the future no longer be at issue. I wish Ms. Deen and her family all the best in all of their future endeavors and I am very pleased that this matter has been now been resolved and can now be put behind us.”

The ruling may have come too late for Deen, who lost at least 12 lucrative business deals after her May 17 deposition went public, which included revelations that the TV chef had used the N-word and admitted planning a “plantation-style” Southern wedding.
