Upon information and belief, Defendant Nguyen was spending corporate funds on numerous personal items, such as charging personal items on Color's American Express card and putting his family's nanny, Sally Orr, and his family's Lake Tahoe‐based ski instructor, Hillary Governer, on Color's payroll.

And god forgive me and my racist heart, but does anyone else picture the boss as looking and talking exactly like Kahn Souphanousinphone from "King of the Hill" when you read this part?:

Color employee Andre Charo inadvertently had some information leaked to the press prior to the launch of a new Color product. Defendent Nguyen oredered other color employees to gather and listen in on a phone call with Charoo who was crying and unaware other color employees were listening in. In this phone call, Nguyen screamed at, humiliated, and fired Charoo over the phone. After the call, Nguyen announced this incident to the entire Color team as an example of what would happen to them if they made a mistake.

 

What the hell? was this guy reading Management Secrets of the Khmer Rougue or something?
