Storage Wars Lawsuit: A&E Denies Show is Rigged

by at . Comments

The network behind reality series Storage Wars, A&E, is responding to a recent lawsuit filed by star David Hester alleging that the popular show is rigged.

A&E is vouching for its show's authenticity as well as questioning Hester's motives, accusing him of "a transparent attempt to distract from the issues."

Those issues include a dispute between the network and Hester over "improper use of AETN trademarks," such as catchphrases like "storage warrior."

Yes, really. Also at issue is Hester's reported attempt to get a new contract; A&E claims he is masquerading as a "crusading whistleblower" to stir up drama.

In his Storage Wars lawsuit filed last month, Hester alleged that A&E committed fraud by planting valuable items and memorabilia seen on the show.

He also claimed that when he confronted producers about this matter, which he took very seriously, he was unceremoniously fired from the show.

David Hester is suing for wrongful termination, breach of contract and unfair business practices, and is seeking $750,000 in damages for his trouble.

It doesn't look like A&E is in a giving mood. This is war, indeed.
