Paula Deen Prevails in Racial Discrimination Suit

Posted Monday August 12, 2013 6:29 PM GMT

Though the process may have irreparably ruined her career, Paula Deen has prevailed in the racial discrimination lawsuit filed against her.

In a decision, the judge ruled that plaintiff Lisa Jackson could not claim racial discrimination because she is white and any comments that the celebrity cook or any of her associates made would not have legally mattered to someone who was not a target.

Though Ms. Jackson argued that she had a biracial family member, the judge said even if that were true, she was an "accidental victim" of any discrimination.

However, the lawsuit will continue to rage on in court as she's also being sued for sexual discrimination. Stay linked to GossipCenter to see how it all pans out.
