Moog Facing Yet Another Lawsuit

The discrimination claim follows an alleged contract violation dating back to 2018.

Moog Facing Another Lawsuit - This Time For Discrimination

Production engineering expert, Moog, is facing an impending lawsuit over discrimination. The latest charges follow in the wake of an ongoing case over a violation of a festival licensing agreement dating back to 2018. 

UG Strategies filed the violation lawsuit on August the 11th, accusing Moog of wrongfully terminating a licensing agreement that allowed the company to manage the 2018 edition of Moogfest. The festival went ahead in May of that year, with the contract becoming void on August the 31st 2018. The contract was supposed to allow UG to cover the showcase up to 2020. 

Moog allegedly agreed to pay a fee for services rendered, but only made good on a small portion of their promise, and UG Strategies are now seeking $25,000 in damages plus attorney fees. 

Speaking to Pitchfork, the attorney for Moog’s CEO Michael J. Adams said: “It is a baseless lawsuit filed on the eve of the statute of limitations by a company who terminated the contract.” 

It is not a good time for Moog. The company is already locked in a battle with claimant Hannah Green, who is seeking more than $1M in compensation and fees over a discrimination claim. 

Green alleges she faced several harassment occurrences from her male counterparts within the sales team. The claim includes physical harassment and intimidation over a sustained timeframe and claims that she was fired in April last year as a result of her coming forward. 

The lawsuit also includes a claim that promotion was not offered and eventually given to a male colleague without Moog posting the open position with a fair application process, which was in contravention to company policy. 

It could turn out to be a very expensive conclusion for the music production equipment specialists.
