MORE WOMEN JOIN LAW­SUIT AGAINST FASH­ION MOGUL

Calgary Herald - - CANADA - The Cana­dian Press

The num­ber of women ac­cus­ing Cana­dian fash­ion mogul Peter Nygard of sex­ual as­sault has grown to 57, with 11 more adding their names to a class-ac­tion law­suit. The amended law­suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the South­ern District of New York, claims sev­eral of the new plain­tiffs were un­der­age when they were sex­u­ally as­saulted. It also al­leges that Nygard used vi­o­lence, in­tim­i­da­tion, bribery and com­pany em­ploy­ees to lure vic­tims and avoid ac­count­abil­ity for decades. Nygard has de­nied all al­le­ga­tions.
