Paula Deen has been cleared of all racial discrimination charges.
According to the Associated Press, a federal judge dismissed Lisa Jackson’s claims that the celebrity chef subjected her to racist attitudes and sexual harassment during the five years she worked at Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House.
U.S. District Court Judge William T. Moore Jr. ruled that Jackson, Deen’s former restaurant manager, has no right to sue for racial discrimination because she’s white.
“We are pleased with the Court’s ruling today that Lisa Jackson’s claims of race discrimination have been dismissed,” a rep for Deen told Us Weekly. “As Ms. Deen has stated before, she is confident that those who truly know how she lives her life know that she believes in equal opportunity, kindness and fairness for everyone.”
