Oliver Maner LLP Issued the Following Statement Regarding Civil Action File No. CV12-03960-AB in Eastern Judicial Circuit of Chatham County, Georgia, on Behalf of Paula Deen Enterprises, LLC

SAVANNAH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Statement Regarding Civil Action File No. CV12-03960-AB in Eastern Judicial Circuit of Chatham County, Georgia:

“Ms. Jackson did work for Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, and she did some work for Paula Deen Enterprises, LLC. She now claims that she was mistreated during her employment. We investigated those claims and attempted unsuccessfully to address those claims with her. She has made baseless, inflammatory allegations, threatening to go to the press and ruin Paula Deen's reputation and the reputation of her businesses unless we paid her a large sum of money. We refused to bow to that kind of pressure and refused to pay money to address false claims. Ms. Jackson's complaint makes false allegations against Paula Deen and they will be proven false in court. We have filed our defensive pleadings with the court denying Ms. Jackson's claims and those pleadings are a matter of public record. We will hold Ms. Jackson and her lawyer accountable for these false allegations. We look forward to our day in court and have nothing further to say.”
