Employment Discrimination Lawsuit Featured on News 12 Long Island

One of my employment discrimination cases was featured on Long Island News 12 last night.  The story is available on their website. ("LI man sues Nature's Bounty for alleged racial discrimination," 5/22/2012).   The case was previously covered in the New York Law Journal (here [subscription required]), and the Court's May 1, 2012 decision denying summary judgment and permitting the case to be decided by a jury can be read here.  In its decision, the Court comments that although "Defendant argues a single, race-neutral remark is insufficient to raise an inference of discrimination. This argument ignores the fact that disallowing Plaintiff s 'kind' from using a specific door reasonably could be interpreted by a jury as discriminatory."
