The lawsuit by a former employee against Steven Seagal is on hold, after the star’s lawyer went into court Thursday with a motion to compel arbitration, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Top LA lawyer Marty Singer won an order to stay the lawsuit until a motion to move the entire matter to arbitration can be heard.
That motion is now scheduled for May 27. In addition, Seagal’s side agreed to stay their arbitration against Nguyen pending the hearing.
Seagal is being sued by Kayden Nguyen who alleges he sexually harassed her and that he is involved in sexual trafficking of females.
Singer has contended all along that the action belongs in arbitration not Los Angele Superior court and on Thursday he went to court with an ex parte application to freeze the lawsuit until a hearing to determine if the entire action should be removed into arbitration. Singer won that motion.
Bill Waldo is representing Nguyen.
