SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a leading shareholder rights litigation firm, is investigating whether certain directors and officers of Tapestry, Inc. (“Tapestry”) (NYSE: TPR) breached their fiduciary duties to Tapestry and its shareholders. If you are a Tapestry shareholder, you are encouraged to contact Amber Eck at Haeggquist & Eck for additional information.
Tapestry is an international luxury fashion and accessory company, which owns the Coach, Kate Spade, and Stuart Weitzman brands. Haeggquist & Eck (HAE) is investigating whether members of Tapestry’s Board of Directors or senior management failed to manage Tapestry in an acceptable manner, in breach of their fiduciary duties to Tapestry, and whether Tapestry has suffered damages as a result.
Specifically, HAE is investigating whether the Board breached its fiduciary duties by failing to conduct proper due diligence when it promoted Jide Zeitlin to Chair, then to CEO, and whether it fully explored allegations against him regarding past questionable business practices and misconduct relating to a past relationship.
As journalist William Cohan detailed in a ProPublica article published after Zeitlin’s resignation, Zeitlin had, over ten years ago, induced women into doing sometimes nude photography sessions with him by posing as a photographer under an alias. With one of these women, he eventually conducted a sexual affair and admitted to her that he had been using a pseudonym when he first met her and convinced her to take pictures.
In addition, HAE is investigating whether the Board breached its fiduciary duties by ignoring or failing to monitor with respect to sexual harassment at Stuart Weitzman and then retaliating against an employee for reporting the sexual harassment.
