Full title: HOLLY ANN HALLSTROM, Plaintiff and Appellant, v. BOB BARKER et al.…

Court: California Court of Appeals, Second District, Seventh Division

Date published: Sep 8, 2004

Facts

After being fired from her role as a model on a television game show, the plaintiff brought this action against the defendants for violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), breach of contract, defamation, violation of the Labor Code, abuse of process, and infliction of emotional distress. The issues, in this case, revolve around the plaintiff’s claims that the defendants trimmed her from the show because she had a disability that caused her to gain weight or in retaliation for her refusal to back the show’s host when another model sued him for sexual harassment.

Issue

Court Judgment

The judgment is reversed regarding the plaintiff’s causes of action for disability and age discrimination, libel, slander, and violation of Labor Code section 1050. The order denying the plaintiff’s motion to amend her complaint to allege a cause of action for wrongful termination based on opposing sexual harassment is reversed, and the trial court is directed to set a reasonable time for the plaintiff to file the amendment. The order sustaining the defendant’s demurrer to the plaintiff’s cause of action for intentional infliction of emotional distress is reversed. In all other respects, the judgment is affirmed.
