Peloton Granted Until December 3 to Reply to Daniel McKenna’s Lawsuit

Peloton will have until December 3, 2022 to reply to former instructor Daniel McKenna’s lawsuit, according to a new filing by both parties’ attorneys. The paperwork states:

IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED, by and between the attorneys for Plaintiff Daniel Patrick McKenna and Defendants Peloton Interactive, Inc., and Jennifer Cotter (together, “Defendants”), that Defendants’ time to answer, move, or otherwise respond to the Complaint filed October 12, 2022, shall be extended up to and including December 3, 2022.

Peloton was originally given the standard 20-30 days to respond to Daniel’s lawsuit, but this extension grants them an extra month, approximately.

In case you missed it, Peloton announced that Daniel was no longer an instructor on October 3 after weeks of speculation from members. He filed a lawsuit the next week, alleging “wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.” The lawsuit revealed that he was fired via Zoom on September 12, and Daniel claims he was given no reason or explanation for his termination. You can read the full details of the lawsuit in our overview article.

Peloton has not yet responded to the lawsuit or made any official statements regarding the matter. They will have until the end of the day on December 3 to respond to Daniel’s attorneys, pending another extension being granted.

Daniel is also once again active on social media after more than a month of silence. He made his first public statement following the lawsuit on October 20, thanking people for their support.

We will continue to share updates regarding the pending case between Daniel and Peloton as new information becomes available.
