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.

The least they can do is apologize - publicly.
Paula Dean was racially profiled.
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.
The media got what it wanted....NEXT!
Jesse Jerkson and Al Shrapnel will have a field day...No Justice.
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.””
Does she have standing to sue for her damages?
Now Deen must sue every company that dumped her.
I’m sure you can still get some of her stuff at Big Lots, Building 19, etc.
who was it that said “now where do i go to get my reputation back?”
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.
I guess you never read Jesse Jackson was her biggest defender.
Sue on what grounds? So, she got some Democrat crony to toss out the lawsuit. That doesn’t make her some kind of hero.
