Former ‘Young and the Restless’ star Victoria Rowell claims she was refused reemployment after advocating for more African-Americans in soap operas.
Interesting case with employment law and anti-SLAPP issues.
The plaintiff, an actress, claimed she was retaliated against when she complained that there are not enough African-Americans in soap operas. The only problem is, she never asked for a job. I’m considering bringing an action against the NBA for favoring tall people, even though I’ve never tried out.
The case also includes anti-SLAPP issues, with the defendants managing to get the case transfered from New York, where the anti-SLAPP law does not cover free speech issues, to California where it does.
