UPDATE: Oliver Maner LLP Issued the Following Statement Regarding Civil Action File No. CV12-03960-AB in Eastern Judicial Circuit of Chatham County, Georgia, on Behalf of Paula Deen Enterprises, LLC
Celebrity chef Paula Deen and her brother are named in a sexual and racial harassment lawsuit filed by a former employee, according to a civil complaint obtained Monday by HLN.
The complaint, filed in Superior Court of Georgia's Chatham County, home to Deen's Lady & Sons and Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House eateries in Savannah, says Lisa T. Jackson ended her five-year stint as general manager at Bubba's in August 2010 because of numerous alleged acts of violence, discrimination and racism.
An attorney representing Deen told The Daily Report on Monday that the allegations are false. The attorney said, “We investigated those claims and attempted unsuccessfully to address those claims with her. She made, prior to filing the lawsuit, baseless and inflammatory allegations threatening Ms. Deen’s reputation and the reputation of her businesses unless a sum of money was paid to her."
