Thomas Horodecki, an Elie Tahari manager, is suing the company for $2 million because of the mental anguish it caused him by forcing him to work in New Jersey. Horodecki also says that Tahari's Israel-born wife discriminated against him for not being Israeli, but it sounds like working in Jersey was the last straw. He tells the Post: "It was the smog. It was depressing driving to Jersey. The traffic was horrendous on Route 4, and they are pretty bad drivers. The stores are kind of cheesy for the most part.... And when it comes to styling, let's just say Jersey is difficult. Fashion it is not!" [New York Post]
