BOULDER, Colo. — On paper, Glenn Allan Tefft was sure he qualified for an open position at a Longmont, Colorado, printing plant even with his criminal background. But his spirits were low after he believed he was judged on his appearance during what he thought was a suspiciously brief interview.
“People won’t even look at you,” he said a week before the opportunity arose. “You can tell I’m homeless.”
The Denver Post on Friday filed a lawsuit against the newspaper’s former senior vice president of advertising and two other employees, accusing them of conspiring to use the newspaper’s trade secrets and confidential information to set up a competing advertising agency.
The lawsuit, filed in Denver District Court, alleges the employees, before they resigned from The Post, solicited business from at least one of the newspaper’s advertisers.
