Barnes and Noble Fired Parneros Implying Sexual Harassment Now Dismissal Deal

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 26 – Barnes & Noble is being sued by Demos Parneros, the CEO it fired while saying he violated company policy.

In a September 13, 2019 proceeding with Inner City Press the only media present, the issue of alleged sexual harassment "in this age of #MeToo" came to the fore along with ancillary legal issues before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein.

  Parneros' lawyers from Vladeck, Raskin & Clark had conducted a deposition in Kansas only the day before. They are seeking access to B&N document the latter claims are covered by attorney client privilege.

 Judge Gorenstein was his usual erudite self. It was difficult not to note that while all four lawyers at the counsel tables were women, both of Judge Gorenstein's law clerks present were male. More on Patreon here.

  Now in October 2020, Parneros and B&N have filed a stipulation and proposed order of dismissal of claims, with District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil filed on October 23. The case is Perneros v. Barnes & Noble, Inc., 18-cv-7834 (Vyskocil / Gorenstein).
