Solett sues Warner Channel Latin America, HBO

Exec claims breach of employee's rights

HOLLYWOOD — Alejandra Solett, ousted senior VP and general manager of Warner Channel Latin America, has filed a lawsuit against the net and HBO, both Time Warner units.

Suit, filed in Florida by the Carroll Law Firm, which reps Solett, claims that her basic employee’s rights have been breached and that the nets’ actions have caused serious damage to her reputation and career.

Solett was suspended in late September after allegations that she and former HBO Intl. prexy Steven Rosenberg had steered ad business to Venezuela-based company Advertising Services Group, which they set up.

Probe sought to determine if they had an equity stake in the company. Rosenberg was also suspended.

According to the suit, Solett’s Blackberry and Palm Pilot were seized from her when investigations begun in September and have not been returned.

Aside from seeking to retrieve these personal effects, Solett is demanding payment of her $15,000 legal fees and punitive damages.

Warner Channel and HBO have declined to comment on the litigation.

“We will not comment on the specifics of the case, but the lawsuit is entirely without merit,” HBO declared.

Lawyers for HBO are reviewing the suit.
