Over a year and a half after being found guilty of making public insults and anti-Semitic comments, reports have surfaced that the designer plans to sue the fashion house.

According to the Telegraph, Galliano has filed a suit against his former employer for over €15 million (or $18.85 million). While details are not yet know what Galliano plans to sue for, one would guess that it may have something to do with his name-tarnishing termination, which included an ousting from his own eponymous label. The paper speculates that the trial will begin February 2013.
