Robbins Arroyo LLP: Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS) Fired Its Former CEO Based on Sexual Harassment

Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP is investigating whether certain officers and directors of Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS) breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders. In a recent court filing, the bookseller revealed the true reasons behind the company’s dismissal of its former CEO Demos Parneros. According to Barnes & Noble, a female subordinate reported two incidents in which she was subject to unwanted touching and comments. Since Parneros’ termination, the company has received additional complaints about other inappropriate behavior by Parneros toward female employees. Further, Barnes & Noble says Parneros bullied other staffers and sabotaged the potential sale of the company earlier this year.
