American Apparel considering a position for Charney

The American Apparel board is now considering a role at the company for controversial, ousted founder Dov Charney. Since they forced out the CEO four months ago, the relationship between the board and Charney has been rocky, though he's stayed on as a paid consultant. Now, sources close to the company have said private talks are underway and an agreement would mean staving off a legal battle and preserving the continuity of the company he founded in 1998. Story
