Re: Shatner Sued By Ex-employees

So Shatner was so awful they worked for him for 20 years?
Not to take a side on this issue because I have no idea what the truth is, but the lawsuit claims this all came about because of a recent workplace injury that Shatner wanted them to sign a waiver absolving him of all financial responsibility for, so things could have been perfectly amicable between them for the previous twenty years of employment and then went downhill after the accident. I don't know if he really harassed them until they had to quit, but there's nothing inconsistent with them having a problem now and not having one in the past, since the catalyst for the problem allegedly just occurred recently.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
