The ex-CNN employee who claimed he was fired because he's gay and wore bright colored mariachi outfits and track suits in the newsroom has settled his lawsuit with the cable news giant.
No, it's not Anderson Cooper.
The NY Daily News says that the lawyer for William Kane, a former studio tech confirmed the case has been resolved, but the financial terms are confidential.
"Mr. Kane is pleased with the resolution and wishes to put this chapter of his life behind him and move on," Avallone said Thursday.
"Mr. Kane hopes that his future employer will be more respectful of his lifestyle and embrace his individuality," he added.
Kane filed a $60 million discrimination suit in May against Time Warner and CNN alleging the newsroom became a hostile workplace after his supervisor found out he was gay. Previously, there had never been a problem when Kane wore a Mariachi outfit or track suit - he had more than 100 custom-made suit spanning all the colors of the rainbow.
Kane claimed that fashion style earned praise from star journalists Christiane Amanpour and Fareed Zakaria according to the lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court.
Kane also alleged that former talk show host Piers Morgan complained that an eye-popping blue track suit was distracting and offered him $100 to buy a less colorful set of clothes at TJ Maxx.
But after Kane's sexual orientation and engagement to a Mexican man was out in the open, his supervisor warned him not to wear the yellow mariachi suit anymore "because it was too flamboyant for a male in our department," the suit alleged.
