American Apparel Founder Faces Sexual Harassment Charges

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 3-Apr-2011

Dov Charney, chairman and chief executive officer of American Apparel, has been charged in a court filing by Irene Morales, a former manager of one of American Apparel's branches in New York City, that Charney repeatedly used  "extreme psychological abuse and torment" while she worked with him, reports say. 

Reports say that Morales says Charney took her to his apartment in New York City and held her there for several hours, allegedly forcing her to have sex. The suit alleges repeated sexual harassment over an eight-month period.

The attorneys for Charney have responded by suing Morales and her lawyers for breaching a severance agreement she had signed on leaving the company that essentially gave them immunity from prosecution.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
