SAVANNAH, GEORGIA (AP) - Attorneys for Paula Deen say a lawsuit filed in Georgia claiming the celebrity chef and her brother created a hostile work environment for a former restaurant employee are false and will be proven so.
The woman’s lawsuit alleged Hiers routinely watched pornography and that he once violently shook a black employee.
Attorneys for Jackson, a former general manager at the restaurant, didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
