The hit television reality show “Stor­­age Wars” has suffered a legal set­­back. A court in Los Angeles has given one of its former stars, Dave Hester, the go-ahead to sue the show’s producers and the A&E cable TV network for retaliation.

Hester alleges he was fired after he went public with the allegation that the show planted valuable items in storage lockers to be discovered by the bidders. He claims his termination was retaliation for speaking out.

At the time he was fired, Hester—an auctioneer in real life—was set to earn $25,000 for each of 26 “Storage Wars” episodes scheduled to air this year.

His lawsuit seeks $750,000 in general damages, plus unspecified punitive damages.
