TORONTO, Ontario, Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, four lawsuits have been commenced against Albert Schultz as well as the Soulpepper Theatre Company. The actresses claim that while they were under contract with Soulpepper, they were sexually assaulted and harassed by its Artistic Director, Mr. Schultz, and that Soulpepper did nothing to protect them.
"Mr. Schultz abused his power for years. My clients fully intend to hold him and Soulpepper Theatre Company accountable. Their brave lawsuit is the first step towards righting this incredible wrong," said Alexi Wood of St. Lawrence Barristers, LLP, counsel to the actresses.
The Plaintiff actresses will be holding a press conference on January 4, 2018 to discuss their claims. The press conference will take place at co-counsel Tatha Swann's office at Levitt LLP, 130 Adelaide St W, Suite 801, Toronto, ON at 11:00 am.
