John Galliano loses dismissal lawsuit against his former employer Christian Dior SA

In 2013, John Galliano’s legal battle against Dior and his namesame label (both owned by LVMH) seemed to lean in his favour after a French Court decided to move the trial to a labor court instead of a commercial court. John Galliano was fired from Dior and his namesake label after his very public anti-Semitic and racist rant in Paris in 2011.

According to WWD, at a hearing on Tuesday, the French labor court ruled against Galliano, who was asking both parties for damages between 2.4 million to roughly 13 million euros. Galliano now owes each winning party one symbolic euro (approx. $1.26) each because of the ruling.
