Remember former MBUSA CEO Ernst Lieb who got dismissed for abusing the company expense account? He lost his wrongful dismissal suit
Well this story finally has some closure and it seems justice has been served. Back in October 2011 MBUSA CEO Ernst Lieb was relieved of his duties. It was later revealed that he was relieved due to charging personal expenses to the company expense account. Charging things like personal vacation flights, remodeling his home, and his wife's country club membership. Well, Mr. Lieb took issue with his dismissal and sued Daimler in Germany over wrongful termination.
This past Thursday the German court dismissed Lieb's claim. The court stated, "In the view of the court, the allegations against the plaintiff are so serious that any further employment [at Daimler] would be unacceptable." Lieb intends to appeal the ruling as he seems to have no shame so this is not quite completely over but it sure seems like Lieb should give it a rest already.
