Alexander Wang Sweatshop Lawsuit Headed to Federal Court

Alexander Wang Lawsuit to Refile in Federal Court

>> The lawsuit accusing Alexander Wang of operating a sweatshop in New York City will soon be discontinued, only to be refiled in federal court in short order.

Wenyu Lu — whose original $50 million suit accused Alexander and his brother Dennis Wang of using exploitative labor practices in their New York workspace — filed a motion to discontinue the suit last Thursday. Lu's lawyer Ming Hai told Page Six that Lu plans to resubmit the suit to federal court, where he'll be represented by another lawyer who has more experience with labor law. Lu's suit claimed that he was forced to work for 25 hours straight without a break. Another former employee, Flor Duarte, filed a suit claiming that she was fired after filing for worker's compensation.

Wang's camp has repeatedly denied the allegations, telling Page Six, "The claims of sweatshop conditions were completely and utterly untrue in every respect."
