Swimming World titled the article: "Mark Schubert's Response Blasts Dia Rianda's Wrong Termination Lawsuit." Schubert's lawyer, Richard Foster, claims therein that despite that Mark Schubert was Dia Rianda's boss her complaint is with the Golden West Swim Club and that she can't drag Schubert into it. Well, he is wrong. She can drag him into it because he was a party to the dismissal.
Here is a reference:
"... Armstrong Law Firm Sues California Pizza Kitchen for Sexual Harassment & Pregnancy Discrimination:
The lawsuit names California Pizza Kitchen Supervisor Andy Lee (Palo Alto restaurant) as the individual who engaged in sexually abusive and harassing behavior. The complaint states that Lee had informed the plaintiff that he had prior sexual harassment complaints filed against him...."
I learned early that an employee can drag their supervisor into court over a wrongful termination case especially if they had a part in the wrongful termination which is what Dia is accusing him of doing.
Foster then goes on to say disparaging things about Dia saying what a naughty coach she was, blah, blah, blah, which I don't believe because every time I visited Dia's FaceBook page; (When I was on Facebook), she was showered with love everyday. In fact here is here resume: [Link]
From Swimming World:
"... Plaintiff and her counsel have alleged claims against Schubert that have no basis in the law," Foster's response states. "... all of her claims can only be brought against her employer, Golden West Swim Club. They are not claims that can be brought against Schubert, who was and is an employee of the club. With minimal research, an entry level attorney could have figured that the law does not allow Plaintiff to sue Schubert individually on the claims set forth in her complaint. ..."
