General Hospital Spoilers: Ingo Rademacher Is Still Fighting With The ABC Network Over Discrimination
According to Radar Online, in a new filing, Ingo’s legal team has unearthed some new documents after both cases were asked to exchange files. Ingo said, “ABC produced documents that show the company decided to fire Ingo before it even adopted the vaccination policy because he did not share the company’s preferred political and social views. Ingo did not learn about these actions until he received the documents in discovery.”
If that weren’t enough, he also says that the ABC network’s vaccine mandate was just used as a “ruse” to apparently get rid of him from the show. Ingo believes that General Hospital had plans to pink slip him anyway, seeing how his contract was up during the summer of 2021.
His lawyer said, “Put simply, ABC did not fire Ingo because he did not perform the essential functions of his job. It fired him because it disagreed with political and social views he espoused. It fired him because he did not share the company’s preferred political and social views. That violates the California Labor Code and constitutes a breach of Ingo’s employment agreement.”
Ingo’s trial with ABC is scheduled for February.
General Hospital Spoilers: What’s Next For Ingo?
Back in June, Ingo said that the ABC network tried to destroy his acting career. Late last year, Ingo said in his lawsuit that the COVID vaccine mandate is unconstitutional and amounts to religious discrimination. He is also being repped by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and John W. Howard, an attorney who has already filed several lawsuits challenging the vaccine mandates. Ingo was let go back in November when he refused to comply with the ABC network’s vaccine mandate.
So far Ingo himself has not made any comments about the matter but there’s no doubt he’ll have more to say closer to the trial. Watch this space.
