Sexual Orientation Discrimination Lawsuit Against Big Law Firm

An associate attorney at the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell in New York City has sued the firm for sexual orientation discrimination and retaliation under a New York City ordinance.

It will be a few weeks before we start talking about employment discrimination claims, especially sexual orientation discrimination; however, I thought this story was worth bringing to your attention now. We can discuss it in more detail when we get to that unit of the course.

Here's a really interesting blog post about the case from one of my favorite law blogs. Notice that Professor Moss is only suggesting that the complaint is well-crafted enough to entitle Charney, the plaintiff, to discovery. He is not, at this point, suggesting that Charney has a winner of a claim, as I read his post.
