John Galliano to sue Dior
Less than a week since being stripped of his French Legion of Honour, it’s being reported that John Galliano might be fighting back against Dior, reportedly seeking $18.8 million dollars in damages from his former employer. According to the Daily Telegraph, Galliano filed papers that relate to an employee-employer dispute with the Paris industrial tribunal, Conseil des prud’hommes. If the Daily Telegraph is right, the details that unfold are sure to be interesting, particularly since Dior is owned by LVMH—the same company that owns 91% of John Galliano’s namesake label. The French labour court will hear the details of the case on February 4, 2013, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on all the developments that unfold.
