Chef Ramsay Stews After Judge Dismisses Suit
August 10, 2007
NEW YORK -- In yet another decision upholding arbitration clauses, a federal judge in New York dismissed a lawsuit against celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay over the reality show "Kitchen Nightmares".
U.S. Judge Shira Scheindlin tossed the suit filed by Martin Hyde, a former New York restaurant manager who claimed Ramsay faked kitchen disasters and the program was a sham. Scheindlin ordered both sides to enter arbitration as required by their contract, allowing Ramsay to go ahead with a new season of the reality show.
