American Apparel CEO Faces Four More Accusers

Less than a month after an ex-employee sued him for sexual harassment, four women are banding together in a similar case against American Apparel CEO Dov Charney.

According to Courthouse News Service, the quartet’s lead plaintiff “claims Charney sexually assaulted her when she went to his home for an interview. Three other women say they can’t describe in detail what happened to them because they signed confidentiality agreements that Charney requires of all American Apparel employees.” The same plaintiff alleges that after left the company, “Charney sent her inappropriate sexual text messages and called her, saying ‘he was masturbating on the phone while they spoke,’ according to the complaint.”

The complaint, as reported in Courthouse News Service, alleges an apparent sexual assault that left the lead accuser “traumatized and terrified.” All four women also contend that arbitration and confidentiality agreements they signed with the company are invalid, Courthouse News Service says.
