Paula Deen Asks Judge to Dismiss Harassement Suit

April 1, 2012

Paula Deen and her brother Bubba were recently slapped with a sexual harassment suit from a former employee of their restaurant, Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House. Now, Deen is asking the judge to dismiss the case altogether, citing "improper and unethical purposes." 

Basically, Deen's lawyers are arguing that the suit was filed to simply defame Deen and her business reputation. The timing does seem suspect, especially after all the backlash the celebrity chef has received since announcing she has diabetes.
