Rodney Sampson, co-founder and former CEO of Streaming Faith and its parent company, the Christian-media giant Multicast Media Technologies, has filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the company allegingand race discrimination.
The lawsuit, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, alleges Sampson created the faith-based technology concept central to the company’s success. He claims co-founders Louis Schwartz and Ronald Rice ousted him because he confronted them over a deal they were brokering in 2002 to market pornography. After that meeting, Sampson says, the two conspired to terminate and defamed him, costing him other job opportunities.
