I often write on popular issues in employment law, but this time the issue is the employment lawyers themselves. A local Los Angeles employment lawyer who represented one of the masseurs accusing John Travolta of sexual battery/sexual harassment is now suing "famous TV attorney" Gloria Allred. The lawyer has sued Allred claiming that she poached his John Travolta client while he represented him. The John Doe client along with another unidentified male is now represented by Allred.
Allred vigorously denies the poaching allegations and has threatened to countersue for defamation.
UPDATE: L.A. Superior Court Judge Michael Linfield officially dismissed the suit against Allred on June 29. The Court ruled that since the "claims are premised upon activities protected by the litigation privilege, there is no possibility" of prevailing on this claim.
What do you think of this interesting twist to the John Travolta cases?
