Ousted Recording Academy CEO Files Federal Discrimination Complaint

Share this article:Days after being placed on administrative leave, Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Tuesday. The complaint contends that Dugan was placed on leave in retaliation for a December email to the academy’s human resources manager alleging “egregious conflicts of interest, improper self-dealing by board members and voting irregularities with respect to nominations for Grammy Awards, all made possible by the `boys’ club’ mentality and approach to governance at the academy.” Dugan’s email also alleged that she was subjected to sexual harassment last year by the academy’s general counsel, according to the complaint. She also claimed she had been pressured by the board to hire former academy CEO Neil Portnow — who stepped down under fire for a much-derided comment about female artists — as a consultant for $750,000. According to the complaint, a copy of which was published by The Wrap, Dugan was placed on leave last Thursday, three weeks after sending her email. The academy also issued a “false and defamatory” explanation that the move was in response to a misconduct complaint against…

Trump Impeachment: Senate Rejects 3 Bids by Democrats to Subpoena Documents for Trial

The U.S. Senate plunged into President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial on Tuesday with Republicans abruptly abandoning plans to cram opening arguments into two late-night sessions and Democrats arguing for more witnesses to expose Trump’s “trifecta” of offenses. The turn of events was a setback for Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell and the president’s legal team, exposing a crack in the GOP ranks and the growing political unease over the historic impeachment proceedings unfolding amid a watchful public in an election year. Chief Justice John Roberts gaveled open the session, with House prosecutors on one side, Trump’s team on the other, in the well of the Senate, as senators sat silently at their desks, under oath to do “impartial justice.” No cellphones or other electronics were allowed. Opening day stretched into the night. Senators returned to the chamber after 8 p.m. following a dinner break. Republicans turned back Democratic amendments to subpoena documents from the White House and State Department. McConnell stunned senators and delayed the start of proceedings with his decision to back off some of his proposed rules. Republicans were said to be concerned over the political optics of…
