HOLLYWOOD CASTING FIRM BREAKDOWN SERVICES SUED BY WOMAN WHO SAYS SHE WAS DISMISSED AFTER SUPERVISOR RAPED HER
A woman who has worked for 12 years for the Hollywood casting firm Breakdown Services on Tuesday filed a lawsuit accusing the company of hiring a registered sex offender who sexually assaulted her on the job.

In her 21-page complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, former customer services assistant Deana Maioli said she was assaulted last September in the company parking lot by a supervisor named Jamal Bryant after a pattern of sexual harassment and threats.

The suit also says that when she reported the sexual assault to company officials, she was forced to repeat her accusations in a semipublic space — and then suspended and later forced to resign. She is seeking unspecified damages. “Defendants paid no attention to Plaintiff’s desperate pleas for help, and when they finally did listen, violated her privacy and made her out to be the wrongdoer,” the suit said.

As a New York City jury begins deliberations in Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial today, Breakdown Services, a dominant casting force in Hollywood, has just been slapped with a lawsuit from a long-time staffer claiming sexual assault, highly negligent management methods & an atmosphere of aggression and disregard.

“Defendants hired a convicted sex offender to a supervisory position where he harassed, threatened, and raped Plaintiff,” alleges a Harassment, Retaliation, Wrongful termination and Discrimination action filed this morning in Los Angeles Superior Court against the long-established Gary Marsh-founded end-to-end organization.

Amidst claims of “willful destruction of Plaintiff’s sense of well-being,” Breakdown Services themselves are named as defendants in the jury seeking civil action, as are Marsh, the company’s director of operations Kathleen Bueche. Also named is Jamal Bryant, the supervisor who allegedly raped former Breaking Services customer services assistant Deana Maioli in September last year in a company parking lot. READ MORE
