 A Trenton pork roll maker is being sued by the wife of a former employee who was allegedly fired for farting too much in the office, according to a federal discrimination lawsuit.
Louann Clem, who worked alongside her husband, Richard Clem, at Case Pork Roll Co., says in a federal lawsuit filed last month that after her husband received gastric bypass surgery he suffered serious consequences, including “extreme gas and

uncontrollable diarrhea.”

Case President Thomas Dolan began to harass Clem and his wife when the smell of Richard’s flatulence began to overpower the aroma of pork roll, according to the lawsuit.

“We have to do something about Rich,” the lawsuit says Dolan told Louann Clem. “This can’t go on. We can’t run an office and have visitors with the odor in the office.”

The comments continued until Richard Clem was fired on Feb. 28, 2014. Louann Clem quit the same day because of the ‘harassment and discrimination” her husband endured, the lawsuit says.
Clem is suing under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and the state Law Against Discrimination because of her association with her husband, who was 420 pounds and had an obesity disability, according to the lawsuit.
