I just read that the judge in the lawsuit has sent the case to arbitration!
www/tvweek.com/news/2007/08/gordon_ramsay_lawsuit_kitchen_ nightmares.phpManhattan restaurant manager Martin Hyde was fired during the filming of a “Nightmares” episode, then filed a $1 million lawsuit in U.S. District Court against Mr. Ramsay and the show’s producers in June. Mr. Hyde accused “Nightmares” of planting spoiled meat, fixing a chair to fall apart and hiring actors to pose as guests lending the appearance of a successful makeover. Earlier this month, a judge tossed the suit into arbitration.
