Clients of WME Entertainment Asked to Depart and Decry Company for Alleged Abuse Against Women

LogoIn the wake of the Harvey Weinstein, Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly scandals, many high-profile women are now speaking out about sexual harassment, abuse and the overall marginalization of women by men in power. Gender abuse has many faces and is not relegated to sexual harassment in the entertainment industry but runs rampant throughout corporate America and government. Case and point: the plight of African-American corporate executive Tanique Wright of Colorado Springs, Colorado who is the Vice President of Human Resources for Professional Bull Riders, a WME Entertainment company.

Weinstein Scandal Prompts A Just Cause to Speak out About Abuse to Female Executive by WME Entertainment & PBR

LogoThe Harvey Weinstein scandal shows how men of power and corporations can leverage their power to abuse and take advantage of women in the entertainment industry. Whether it's the allegedly sexual predatory behavior of Mr. Weinstein or the sexism and racism experienced by Ms. Tanique Wright, Vice President of Human Resources for Professional Bull Riders (PBR), a WME Entertainment company. As an African-American female executive, Wright is one of the lowest paid VP's on the leadership team, was told by management she is not allowed to attend weekly leadership meetings and has been denied equal treatment and pay consistent with white male executives. She filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and they found merit in Wright's claims and issued her a right to sue WME and PBR. Wright spoke to A Just Cause about the alleged culture of abuse at WME Entertainment.

After Arpaio, Trump Should Pardon Los Angeles County Sheriff Officials Says A Just Cause

Logo"Make no mistake, in vast majority of federal criminal cases, federal judges and DOJ prosecutors are on the same team," says Lamont Banks, Executive Director of A Just Cause. "Federal prosecutors would not have a 98% conviction rate without the support of a crony federal judiciary. The United States would not have the dubious distinction of American citizens being 25% of the world's prison population without many judges' tag-teaming with prosecutors to guarantee they win convictions at any cost. It's virtually impossible for human beings to consistently achieve 98% success in any human exercise without cheating or being crooked in some way," says Banks. "Compare Bernie Madoff, who maintained high returns on investments irrespective of depressed market and economic conditions because he was engaged in a criminal Ponzi scheme, to U.S. federal prosecutors who maintain high conviction rates irrespective of being engaged in unlawful, egregious misconduct. An independent federal judge committed to the Constitution, fair trials and justice in America is the exception, not the rule. Justice for the LASD9 must come from somewhere, hopefully through President Trump," says Banks.

Members of Congress Request Judicial Complaint Filed Against Colorado Federal Judge

LogoOn July 20, 2017, Colorado Springs advocacy organization A Just Cause filed a judicial complaint against Judge Christine M. Arguello for "displaying religious animus and making demonstrably egregious, hostile and slanderous comments" about Pastor Rose Banks of the Colorado Springs Fellowship Church (CSFC) in Colorado Springs, Colorado and abusing a legal court proceeding for the purpose of attacking Pastor Banks. Judge Arguello has never met Pastor Rose Banks, who, for the past 36 years, has been the Pastor of CSFC. Pastor Banks has never committed a crime or been indicted and has a stellar reputation for honesty, integrity, kindness, tough love and giving in the Colorado Springs community. "Judge Arguello clearly violated the doctrine of the separation of church and state and standards of basic human decency," says Cliff Stewart of A Just Cause.
