DLA Piper Race-Bias Suit Rejected
A discrimination suit that was brought against DLA Piper by a former associate, Charlene Morisseau, was rejected by a Manhattan federal judge. Morisseau is a Harvard Law School graduate who joined the firm in 2003 and was terminated less than one year later. In her lawsuit Morisseau alleged that she was fired after she complained to the human resources department about partners' racist behavior; Morisseau is black. New York judge Lewis Kaplan, who granted summary judgment in DLA Piper's favor, said in his finding that the firm argued "legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for plaintiff's termination." After the decision Morisseau filed an opposition.
