Wang first denied the claims in the press, and released a formal court statement in June. And now, it's over. WWD explains that the suit has been dismissed "following an undisclosed settlement between both sides two weeks ago."
The article continues:
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but according to a letter dated Aug. 1, following the agreement, both sides would submit a request to the court that the case be dismissed with prejudice, meaning that once dismissed, neither side could file an appeal.
Lawyers for the former employees, Flor Duarte and Wenyu Lu, declined to comment, but a spokesperson for Alexander Wang told WWD, "We are gratified that this matter has been dismissed, as the allegations were unfounded and completely false."
