In a hearing before a Federal Magistrate Judge this week, Chewy, the pet product company, was ordered to turn over certain emails of their CEO, Sumit Singh.
The case involves a lawsuit for employment discrimination against Chewy. Michael Krumpak of Oakland Park, Florida was a former Director at Chewy until he was terminated. His lawsuit claims that he was terminated because of his age and his sexual preference. The lawsuit alleges that he was shunned by management after he attended a party with his husband.
Krumpak’s attorneys at Coane and Associates of Hallandale Beach, argued that emails of the CEO relating to Krumpak’s termination were relevant and the judge agreed. The company had objected to turning over the emails, but was ordered to do so this week by the Federal Magistrate Judge in Fort Lauderdale.
The case is expected to be set for trial later this year.
