FIPS says it’s gotten its hands on a lawsuit that Gorilla Coffee has filed against the New York Times, one of its reporters (presumably Oliver Strand), and eight former employees for participating in “the preparation and publication of (a) false, defamatory, malicious and libelous article.” Back in April, departing workers sent the Times an e-mail, which Diner’s Journal reprinted, complaining of a “perpetually malicious, hostile, and demeaning work environment.” According to FIPS, the suit calls that e-mail “false and injurious” and seeks damages for “egregious, wanton, reckless and negligent conduct.” We weren’t able to find a record of the lawsuit, and have left a message with Gorilla asking for comment.
