Attorneys announced that the parties settled the hostile work environment lawsuit that was filed against Lost actor Henry Ian Cusic, ABC Entertainment, and production company Grass Skirt Entertainment. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
A former ABC production employee, Chelsea Stone, had sued Henry Ian Cusic and ABC for sexual harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination. In October 2007, Shone accused the actor of groping and kissing her “while making moaning sounds.”
After she complained to supervisors, ABC and Grass Skirt Entertainment allegedly did nothing while Cusic and other employees created a hostile work environment for Stone, who was subsequently fired 12 days after having complained about Cusic’s harassment.
