)-- Latest update concerning the Colby Dorman v. Giant Inland Empire R.V. Center Inc. and Jay Bensiek Lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges: In 2017, an employee arrived to work at the RVIA Show at the Fairplex in Pomona, California to find a noose hanging over his desk. He alleges that the noose had been hung by the company's Finance Manager and after complaining to management, the plaintiff was subjected to retaliation. Giant RV filed a motion to keep the case out of court. The employee’s attorneys are fighting the motion.
Parties in the lawsuit have yet to receive a ruling on Defendant’s motion to compel arbitration. The Honorable Bryan Foster stated that the matter is “under submission.” The parties expect a ruling later this week.

Dorman is represented by attorney Ann A. Hull. Defendants are represented by John C. McNutt or Musick, Peeler & Garrett.
