FRANK MILLER SUED BY FORMER EMPLOYEE

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - Comic book mogul-turned-movie director Frank Miller is facing legal action from a former employee who alleges she suffered a campaign of abuse at the hands of his actress girlfriend.

Joanna Gallardo-Mills, 41, has filed a lawsuit at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York accusing Miller's girlfriend, Kimberly Cox, of mistreating

her, and she claims she was let go from her role as Miller's executive coordinator when she spoke out.

In the legal papers, Gallardo-=C2=ADMills alleges Cox threw a phone and

chair at her, and "smeared human feces" (sic) in her work area, while she also alleges her printer was destroyed with "a hammer" and used underwear was left by her desk, according to the New York Post.

Gallardo-Mills' lawyer, Matthew Blit, says, "Nobody should have to work

under those conditions," but Cox says of the legal action, "We didn't know this was going forward because she was offered a very heavy settlement

and declined."

Gallardo-Mills is suiing the Sin City co-director and Cox for discrimination and "mental anguish", seeking unspecified damages.
