HBO and American Humane Association sued by whistleblower over "Luck" animal cruelty

Barbara Casey, a whistleblower, was terminated by the American Humane Association after 13 years of employment as its Director of Production.  Casey urged that HBO and the producers of the Luck television series be reported to law enforcement for animal abuse and cruelty on the set of Luck.  HBO aided, abetted and encouraged the American Humane Association's termination of Ms. Casey so that the humane treatment and protection of animals would not interfere with its television production.  Casey has filed a complaint in the Los Angeles Superior Court for wrongful termination.

See article in The Washington Times

HBO's and the American Humane Association's conduct violated California Labor Code § 1102.5.  Section 1102.5 of the Labor Code provides "whistleblower" protection to employees when the employer retaliates against the employee for reporting or preparing to report illegal acts to law enforcement or government agencies. 

Ms. Casey is represented by The Rutten Law Firm.
