On Tuesday, November 30, 2021, Los Angeles-based U.S. District Judge Fernando M. Olguin gave a big win — or so it seemed — to one of the world’s biggest Quick Service Restaurant brands, McDonald’s.
In a six-page order, Olguin moved forward with McDonald’s Corporation’s Motion to Dismiss a racial discrimination case filed against the company by the Byron Allen-led Entertainment Studios Networks Inc. But, the judge left the door open for ES to file a Second Amended Complaint.
Allen’s team moved forward with doing so. A second Motion to Dismiss was filed by McDonald’s attorneys. Olguin has now denied that second motion.
