Legal move.

Updated June 24, 2016: In a follow-up hearing to the one held May 23, has learned that a judge has ruled that Victoria Rowell’s lawsuit against Sony, which she amended, can proceed. The lawsuit moving forward will focus on her allegations that they removed her from a “Days of our Lives” audition list and have blocked her from returning as Drucilla Winters on “Y&R” in retaliation for her speaking out about the lack of diversity in the soap industry.

On June 6, a trial date of April 17, 2017 has been set for Victoria Rowell’s case against Sony/CBS. The actress updated followers on Twitter:

On November 26, Victoria Rowell let her followers on Twitter know that she had resubmitted a claim against CBS/Sony:

On November 11, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that U.S. District Judge John Kronstadt has dismissed Victoria Rowell’s claim of retaliation in violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act against CBS Corp. and Sony Pictures.

“In effect, Plaintiff claims that there is always a position that is constructively open,” writes the judge. “This alone is not a sufficient basis to state a claim. Indeed, such an approach has the potential to open the door to vast number and wide variety of claims in many industries in which those who did not pursue open positions claimed that employers should have created them. There is no justification for such a material expansion of the McDonnell Douglas test. It would create a new issue: whether there was a reasonable basis for an employer not to have created a new position.”

Apparently, the judge did offer Rowell an opportunity to resubmit if she had proper evidence to support the claim.

As reported on June 22, Rowell has been tweeting about the lawsuit against CBS/Sony and also about some of her former “Y&R” co-stars, which ended up with her blocking actress Eileen Davidson (Ashley). See some of her Twitter posts below:
