Sports media veteran Ray Katz filed a $3 million lawsuit against Omnicom alleging wrongful termination and discrimination, and it's quite the page-turner. It features allegations of fraud, anti-Semitism, taunts regarding sexuality and overall bullying.

"Plaintiff is a 52 year old, unmarried, Jewish male," the lawsuit -- filed against Omnicom Group, OMD, Optimum Sports, and former CFO Mark Amabile -- begins. According to the suit, Katz was discriminated against for being all three -- even though he once dated professional poker player Beth Shak (the two are pictured above), on a reality TV show.
