0 Have your say The battle to save Philip Green’s reputation is lost but the argument over Non Disclosure Agreements will continue to rage, writes Dani Garavelli Some people might wonder if Sir Philip Green had any reputation left to defend. This, after all, is the man who took hundreds of millions from BHS, before selling it to a serial bankrupt for a pound and leaving it with a £571 million hole in its pension fund. As the company collapsed and 11,000 people lost their jobs, the chairman of Arcadia Group – which includes Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge and Topshop – was splashing his cash on luxury holidays or on his $100m yacht, Lionheart. This is the man who put his company in the name of his wife, Tina, who lives in Monaco, in order to cut his tax bill.In Oliver Shah’s unauthorised biography, Damaged Goods – much of which Green disputes – the 66-year-old billionaire is presented as an intolerant bully prone to … [Read more...] about Insight: Should the wealthy be a law unto themselves?
Kathleen Gray Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Oct 19, 2018 When Dana Nessel read the briefs filed by the Michigan Attorney General’s Office in the landmark case that led to the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide, she was beside herself. Not only were the briefs filed by expert witnesses hired by the state attacking her clients — Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer who were fighting for the right to marry and to legally adopt their children — the state’s arguments felt personal.

Meg James and Richard Winton Los Angeles Times Published 8:00 PM EDT Sep 14, 2018 For more than 30 years, Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb has been unable to erase the memories of encounters with Leslie Moonves, the once-powerful chief executive of CBS Corp. Golden-Gottlieb was a TV show development executive in the mid-1980s when she worked with Moonves at Lorimar Productions, the Culver City studio behind such shows as “Dallas” and “Knots Landing.” Moonves was an up-and-coming executive in charge of TV movies, and he invited her to lunch. Instead of driving her to a restaurant, he parked on a side street, Golden-Gottlieb said, and forcibly grabbed her head and slammed it into his crotch, then ejaculated into her mouth. “I wanted him to be accountable,” Golden-Gottlieb, now 82, told The Times in an interview this week. “This has been with me the whole time. I don’t think it was every day, but many days.” Golden-Gottlieb’s … [Read more...] about CBS investigators talk to Leslie Moonves accuser

His fall from Hollywood’s highest echelon was all but sealed after the publication earlier in the day of new sexual harassment allegations against him. The CBS board announced his departure, effective immediately. As part of the agreement, the network said it would donate $20 million to one or more organizations that support equality for women in the workplace. The donation will be deducted from a potential severance benefit to Mr. Moonves, although he could still walk away with more than $120 million, according to two people familiar with the settlement agreement. Mr. Moonves, however, will not receive any severance … [Read more...] about CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves Steps Down After Sexual Harassment Claims
