LOS ANGELES, Feb. 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denny’s today announced that plaintiffs, Renee Hebert and Henry Williams, have dismissed the case in the Los Angeles Superior Court against the company, issuing the following statements:
Statement from plaintiffs Renee Hebert and Henry Williams:
After listening to and reflecting on the former Denny's manager, Ali Rahman's testimony in court explaining his conduct toward us on May 7, 2014, we now believe and are satisfied that his actions that day were an honest mistake and that he was not motivated by discrimination or racism. We also do not believe Denny's is a company that tolerates discrimination or racist conduct by its employees. Therefore, we have amicably resolved our issues and agreed to dismiss this case with both Rahman and Denny's.
Statement from Denny’s:
We are pleased that plaintiffs have dismissed this case. At Denny’s, we value our diverse customer base and are committed to treating all guests with dignity and respect.
