Fox News media writer Brian Flood reports that the attorney for the racial discrimination class action, Daniel R. Meachum, said, the discrimination is “as abhorrent as all of the sexual harassment cases that are rightfully now being prosecuted.”
The original lawsuit had 175 plaintiffs, Fox reports, but Meachum said 30 more alleged victims have come forward since Judge William Duffey Jr. essentially ruled in July the case didn’t have enough to move forward as a class action suit. “We are drafting a new complaint, line by line, addressing the issues that he outlined for us,” Meachum said.
“With the information that we have, and will get during discovery, I think we will be able to survive a motion for summary judgement. At that point, I think we will be victorious,” Meachum said.
