Sitrick's old buddy joins lawsuit *

sitrick-mayer-book.jpgAllan Mayer was a key player in the rise of Sitrick & Company into a major crisis PR firm, and also was the co-author of Michael Sitrick's "Spin: How to Turn the Power of the Press to Your Advantage.” Mayer left the firm in 2006 and now has turned up on the side of a lawsuit filed against Sitrick last month by another associate who alleges manipulation of the employee stock ownership plan. Mayer is currently a partner in 42 West.

Edited post: not a class-action suit.
