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.

job search tip
The next time you make a job move for money, take this test: divide the difference between your old salary and your new salary by 12; take about 35 to 40 percent off for taxes and deductions. That's how much more you're going to take home each month. Then ask: is making the move worth it?

Your privacy is guaranteed. We will never give out, lease, or sell your personal information.
