David Jones (ASX:DJS) has revealed that it is being sued in a sexual harassment case seeking $37 million in damages.
The lawsuit has been lodged by Kristy Fraser-Kirk, the woman who in June made the allegations that (ASX:DJS)">led to the resignation of former CEO Mark McInness.
The suit targets McIness, David Jones, and the current board of directors.
“Both the company and its directors will defend the claims vigorously,” David Jones general manager for corporate affairs, Helen Karlis, said in a statement.
She added that despite the suit, the company reaffirms its profit guidance for FY11 “based on the information available.”
