The firm prevailed in its summary judgment motion seeking dismissal of a discrimination lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of New York. The lawsuit, brought by a custodian of a local school district, alleged that his termination was the result of discrimination animus by the District on the basis of his race. In granting the motion, Judge Arthur D. Spatt found that the District had a legitimate non-discriminatory reason for terminating the plaintiff and dismissed the case in its entirety.
