Dov Charney, the founder and CEO of American Apparel, has found himself at the centre of yet another lawsuit.
Charney is accused of wrongful dismissal and physical assault by Michael Bumblis, the former manager of one of the company's Miami stores. It is the latest in a number of lawsuits in which Charney has been named by former employees in recent years, many of which have accused him of sexual misconduct. All previous cases have been dismissed by the courts.
In the suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Bumblis claims that his issues with Charney began in April this year, when Charney accused him if working for a rival employee. During the verbal altercation, Bumblis claims Charney called him "a wannabe Jew," a "fag", and asked him inappropriate questions about his personal life.
