Rosenberg/Cleveland Orchestra/Plain Dealer case goes to trial

The Cleveland Plain Dealer blog today has details of the opening day of Plain Dealer music critic Donald Rosenberg’s lawsuit against the Plain Dealer and the Musical Arts Association, the parent organization of the Cleveland Orchestra.  In the suit Rosenberg alleges a number of supposed misdeeds on the part of his employer, including age discrimination, and that the officials of the Orchestra pressured the Plain Dealer management into removing him from his long time assignment of reviewing Cleveland Orchestra concerts because he reviewed concerts conducted by music director Franz Welser-Möst in a highly unflattering matter.

The summary in today’s blog post rehashes what has been stated before, but sets things up for some potentially juicy testimony during the jury trial.  Stay tuned.
