Disney Hit With Sexual Orientation Discrimination Suit

The Walt Disney Co. may be gearing up for its traditional celebration of Pride month, but on Tuesday a long-time executive has hit the House of Mouse with a lawsuit of discrimination based on sexual orientation. “Plaintiff has direct and repeated complaints to HR about the discrimination he has endured while employed by Defendants and, concomitantly, the related failures to promote him and to pay him at the same level as other department heads,” says the complaint filed in L.A. Superior Court by attorneys for Joel Hopkins.
