Shelley Lynn Sues McDonald's For Turning Her Into Prostitute
A 2012 Lawsuit Has Shelley Lynn of Nevada Suing McDonald's and Her Ex-Husband For Turning Her Into a Prostitute
Shelley Lynn has a problem with McDonald's. No, she didn't get burned by the contents of a hot apple pie or get upset because she wants them to bring back the McRib. No, Shelley Lynn believes McDonald's forced her into prostitution.
Lynn is suing McDonald's her ex-husband Keith Handley and his company Ivernia for "emotionally and psychologically" coercing her into a becoming a prostitute.
According to Lynn, Handley, who owned the McDonald's franchise she worked at in 1982, had wrongly fired her and then turned her to the sex trade.
Shelly Lynn is suing McDonald's for "lost wages, special damages, compensatory damages, and punitive damages for sex trafficking, negligent retention and supervision of franchisees, and racketeering, among other claims."
The complaint says that McDonald's "failed to conduct a due diligence into the moral character of Handley when it sold franchises to him."
Lynn's complaint goes on to say that McDonald's "does not insure employee policies are in place to protect against unscrupulous and criminal individuals like Handley. It has an active, notorious, and hostile campaign to keep unions out. It offers an inferior health care plan and no pension benefits. Most employees are paid minimum wages as was Lynn. There is no affirmative action to encourage women employees and other women to purchase franchises."
