Nov 2 15
Starz is facing a lawsuit from a former executive accusing the company of firing him in retaliation for complaining about the company's alleged unethical actions. In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Keno Thomas reportedly claimed that he was dismissed as a senior vice president of sales and affiliate marketing after he refused to inflate revenue and subscriber figures and complained about the illegal influence of Liberty Media Corp. on Starz's deals. Thomas, who also named Starz CEO Chris Albrecht and Liberty Media as defendants in the case, added that he was dismissed after a three-week medical leave.
