PR Pro Slapped at Zac Posen Sues: Bring It, Bitches!

Well now, we certainly didn’t see this coming—the HL Group founder who helped organize Zac Posen‘s show last weekend and endured a public bitch slap in the process is now suing the offending Franc for a cool million bucks. You’d better believe that’s a lawsuit.

Lynn Tesoro will take Jalouse editor Jennifer Eymere to court on charges of “assault, battery, emotional distress, slander and/or libel.” Sounds about right!

A bit of “well, duh” advice for anyone who’s active in the public sphere: It’s bad enough to strike someone in our litigious society, but going out of your way to say you’re not sorry for it is a really dumb idea–and it certainly won’t make you a more sympathetic defendant.

While we can’t testify as to the details of this incident, we’d like to call it a victory for PR pros everywhere.
