Singer Chris Isaak is facing a lawsuit from his former lighting director Lane Hirsch, who says that he was discriminated against and unfairly dismissed.
Hirsch claims he was fired after repeatedly complaining to Isaak and others about two female roadies who were treated badly. He also said he was subjected to crude homophobic jokes, while Isaak's tour manager Tim Lamb verbally and physically abused him.
Hirsch says that he told Isaak about these problems, but the singer did not take his claims seriously.
Hirsch claims that he was fired without notice and is suing for wrongful termination, defamation and discrimination. He worked for the singer on tour for 17 years. Ouch. Sad that the relationship deteriorated like this.
Team Isaak or Team Hirsch?
