American Apparel, which has been in an ongoing PR image makeover in recent months, has issued a restraining order against founder and former company CEO Dov Charney.

Charney was let go by the company in 2014 after numerous accusations of alleged sexual harassment by American Apparel employees. In 2012, Charney settled a harassment lawsuit out of court with former employee Irene Morales, then 21-years old, after accusing Charney of harassing her since she was 17. In the suit, Morales, among other accusations, accused Charney of keeping her as a "sex prisoner" and assaulting her sexually on her 18th birthday. After leaving the company, Morales' lawyer noted that she suffered "extreme psychological abuse and torment" as a result of Charney, causing a near total breakdown in 2010.

Now, nearly a year after his firing, the company has gone further in its quest to remove any and all of Charney's image from the Los Angeles-based manufacturer. A portion of the suit reads:

"Mr. Charney is temporarily restrained from directly or indirectly seeking the removal of any member of the Company's board of directors, including by instigating, encouraging, acting in concert with or assisting any third party in seeking to do so," the company's statement said. "[He is] temporarily restrained from making or causing to be made to any third party (including by press release or other statement to the press or media) any statement that disparages or negatively reflects on the Company or its current, former or future employees, officers or directors."

The suit is ongoing.
