    Oprah's OWN Network Being Sued - Over workplace issues

    The sleuths at TMZ are reporting that Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network has been sued by a former employer with Multiple Sclerosis who alleges that workplace stress worsened her condition and she was treated poorly because of her illness. According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Catherine Dunn was an assistant at OWN starting in August 2008 and claims she was "subjected to a hostile work environment" because of her condition. Hmmmm.

    Dunn claims she was forced to take a stress leave because the stress that came due to the unpleasant work environment, which only exacerbated her condition. She was also forced to take a leave of absence. While on leave, Dunn was replaced by "a non-disabled and younger employee," according to the lawsuit. Dunn is suing for wrongful termination, among other things. She is asking for unspecified damages.

    Do you think this suit has any validity or cred?
