In June 2010, I filed an EEOC charge and, shortly thereafter, a complaint in the Eastern District of New York, alleging discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation as a subset of sex. We could not overcome earlier interpretations of the law, but I fought, first to a three-judge panel

The George Floyd Protests and the Future

I've litigated many police misconduct cases. These include excessive force (or police brutality), false arrest, malicious prosecution, interference with fair trial by perjury, and other areas. I have mostly practiced employment discrimination because juries understand that; regrettably, most juries do not understand police brutality, but maybe, finally, they will now.

I've written in this sorry blog about Krucial Staffing and its mistreatment of nurses lured to New York to be subject to unconscionable conditions. The nurses are being paid well, and most have fallen in line, refusing to speak out about Krucial's tactics, as well as that of its Do-What-You-Gotta-Do

My big win at the Second Circuit, Zarda v. Altitude Express, 883 F.3d 100 (2d Cir. 2018) (en banc) has a petition for certiorari pending at the U.S. Supreme Court. This is a request for the high court to take the appeal and decide it. The Court takes only 5%

I love appeals. You need a lawyer who knows appellate law and procedure if you are appealing and expect to win. My record of wins when I am defending appeals is almost 100% (in two cases, the court made little changes). My record on appeal as the appellant - the
