CASE CLOSED: A Tokyo District Court has rejected former Prada Japan retail manager Rina Bovrisse's lawsuit against the Japanese subsidiary of the Italian luxury goods company. Bovrisse filed a lawsuit in 2010 alleging that Prada Japan managers harassed her and discriminated against her and other employees on the basis of physical appearance. Specifically, Bovrisse's charges include claims that Prada Japan chief executive Davide Sesia allegedly asked her to fire employees he deemed unattractive or overweight. Bovrisse's agent put out a statement shortly after last week's court ruling, expressing frustration and stating that Bovrisse is considering her options for appeal. A Prada spokesman said that the court's decision "eliminates any possible doubt" about the matter and declined to elaborate on the specifics of the case. Prada has a countersuit pending against Bovrisse alleging that she made false statements.
