Woman Drops Lawsuit vs. Staples for Alleged Rat Problem


A Hawthorne woman who sued Staples the Office Superstore, alleging she was forced to quit earlier this year because the Venice location where she worked was infested with rats, has dropped her lawsuit.

A lawyer for plaintiff Ashley Carlyle filed court papers on Monday with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Sotelo asking that Carlyle’s case be dismissed “with prejudice,” meaning it can’t be refiled. The court papers did not state if a settlement was reached or if Carlyle was not pursuing the case for other reasons. In June, the judge had put discovery in the case on hold while the parties engaged in mediation.

Carlyle’s allegations included wrongful termination, harassment, whistleblower retaliation, disability discrimination and violations of the state Labor Code. She was hired last Oct. 26 as a retail associate at the store on Lincoln Boulevard and soon promoted to operations manager, overseeing office supplies, cashiering and truck loading, the suit stated.
