If they make a Horrible Bosses 3, it will be about the New Jersey Devils Lou Lamoriello and it won't have anything to do with the product on the ice. Lamoriello is being sued for 2.25 million dollars by former president of Devils Arena Entertainment, Richard Krezwick. This lawsuit reads like a movie.
Several weeks after Krezwick learned he would be let go, several of his senior managers were fired by the Devils, the lawsuit says.
"Lamoriello physically positioned himself in a chair at the base of the employee elevator of the arena so that he could watch these individuals pass by with their boxes of personal belongings in order to leave the building directly after they were fired and to laugh as they passed by, as to take credit for their firing," the lawsuit adds.
Seriously, this is real life. It should be noted that Krezwick isn't suing the Devils, he is specifically suing Lamoriello.
The lawsuit seeks damages of at least $2.39 million for Lamoriello's alleged interference in his prospective contract as well as an order restraining Lamoriello from "impugning Krezwick's professional reputation and interfering in present and prospective contractual relationships."
Apparently Lamoriello is a real nice guy to work for.
"The meetings continued to occur and grow more acrimonious for several months, until the final meeting when Lamoriello launched into a vulgarity-laced personal attack on Krezwick," the lawsuit states. "Lamoriello then abruptly left the room and refused to resume that meeting or take part in any future meetings."
This is amazing. We have all worked for jerks in our life, but to laugh at the faces of those you fired? Thats next level stuff. At least if you are the Devils you know if you ever rid yourself with Lamoriello this goes with him.
