Galliano facing defamation lawsuit

Galliano was sacked as head designer for Christian Dior after he was arrested by cops in Paris, France in February (11) over allegations he racially abused a couple at a bar and praised Adolf Hitler.

On Wednesday (04May11), it emerged he had sacked his attorney Stephane Zerbib and later made a complaint of “aggravated breach of trust” – but Zerbib has now hit back with a counter-suit for defamation, according to AFP.

Officials in Paris are due to announce on 12 May (11) when Galliano will go on trial over the allegations of making racist and anti-Semitic remarks.
