interns suing the studio for doing menial tasks.

It was bound to happen eventually, not so much  at this specific place but, in general.  On the other side Tennessee is an at will state.

Careful, or we'll start seeing studio's sue interns for all the education they got while being interns without paying for it.  ::)

If you read the article you will see it is not an intern who is suing the company but an ex employee

According to the suit, one of the interns sent to do the home check was provided a gun, even though the intern had no firearms training.

Haha! Only in America!
I'd work there, sounds fun.

If facts got in the way of a good whinge, the internet would be a very empty place ;-)

yes, I misread it the first time. I thought the lawsuit was by interns.  however Tennessee is an at will state much like California, you can be removed from work by our employer at any time without cause.   But since the employee removed filed a complaint hey might have a law suit as it is illegal to fire someone in retaliation for being a whistle blower.

I wonder what Tennessee firearms laws are in that regard?  I'm not gonna waste time chasing that sh*t-show of a fact.  They'll be different next week anyway, and won't apply across state lines.
