Ex-exec sues Industry pension-health plans

A former executive with the Motion Picture Industry Pension and Health Plans filed a wrongful termination suit against his former employer, claiming he was fired on charges of sexual harassment because he was a critic of the organization’s management.

In a suit filed on Friday, Scott Folb, who had been a plan administrative director, says he was fired in October after a female employee filed a complaint of sexual harassment against him. In the suit, he says that the claims were “fallacious.” The suit said that plan officials also cited slurs and insults against other senior managers. Folb says he never received any verbal or written reprimand and was not given a fair hearing.

The suit names the pension and health plans, its executive administrative director Harley Blankenship, and Frank Dickenson, co-chair of the administrative committee of the plans’ board of directors.

The suit seeks unspecified damages. William Cole, an attorney for the plans, had no comment because it is pending litigation.
