B. Scott v. BET Networks (USA)


“A flowing black tunic and black heels is the crux of a lawsuit filed yesterday in the Superior Court of California by Brandon Sessoms, otherwise known as B. Scott. The lawsuit stems from Scott’s appearance as the ‘Style Stage Correspondent’ for the 2013 BET Awards 106 & Park Pre-Show on June 30, 2013.  According to the lawsuit, no other presenters and commentators had any restrictions placed upon them during the pre-show activities. Scott argues that BET’s actions not only humiliated him but also subjected him to ridicule and unfair treatment. He has characterized BET’s actions as malicious, oppressive and despicable. His complaint rests on six causes of action, including discrimination based on gender identity and expression as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress. Scott is requesting $2.5 million in damages.”
