    Race-based claims thrown out in discrimination lawsuit against Paula Deen

    Celebrity chef Paula Deen scored a legal victory Monday when a federal judge threw out race discrimination claims against her by a former Savannah restaurant manager, whose lawsuit has already cost the celebrity cook a valuable chunk of her culinary empire.

    Lisa Jackson sued Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers, last year saying she suffered from sexual harassment and racially offensive talk and employment practices that were unfair to black workers during her five years as a manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House. Deen is co-owner of the restaurant, which is primarily run by her brother.

    If she has the time? Her career will revive. It'll be old news shortly. Remember Dog, The Bounty Hunter? I think he was back on air in a year or two.

    I'm glad she won the lawsuit; but it could hardly have cost her more.

    IIRC, the law suit wasn't what cost her career, but her own admittal that she had used racial slurs before in her life. I think that's a bogus reason to cost her career, but the lawsuit was just the latest stunt againt her.

    I actually think this lawsuit, however, will go a long way in redeeming this woman's career though which will be a good thing. People do dumb things in their lives and noone is perfect, especially in younger years. This woman should not have been demonized for things she said in the past.

    I wonder what standing she will have to counter-sue this woman?

    Probably won't see much of anything given back, at least not right away. In our emotional, knee jerk, satisfy me now culture we created, this is what happens.

    She could likely rebuild if she really wanted.

    I would be willing to bet she will and we'll see several shows and books from her as well IMO. If anything this will propel her even more than she was IMO.

    It is a line of crap, but less we on whole learn to be patient and reserve judgement, then it'll just be how it goes.

    She actually caused her own demise. My guess is that she had an opportunity to settle. Probably before the lawsuit was ever filed. Could have done so with a confidentiality agreement, admitting no wrong-doing. She gambled and lost. I hope it was worth it. It may have been for me.

    Her apology video did more damage to her than any accusation, she played that victim card fast.
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
