American Apparel granted restraining order against founder Dov Charney

US retailer American Apparel has been granted a restraining order against the company’s founder and former chief executive Dov Charney, who was fired amid sexual harassment lawsuits and financial troubles in June last year.

The Delaware court order reinforces and continues the terms made in a previous order last year, which includes preventing Charney from attempting to get any of the board members removed or making negative statements about the company or its employees in the press.

American Apparel appointed Paula Schneider as its first female chief executive in December last year to replace ousted Charney. Schneider was previously president of ESP Group, which owns brands such as US menswear label English Laundry and women’s sleepwear label French Dressing.
