Posted on 11/10/2017 10:42:06 AM PST by ForYourChildren
The Atlanta lawyer whose racial discrimination suit against CNN was dismissed earlier this year says he is re-filing the class action case this time with a new set of plaintiffs and even more alleged victims.
The network news channels alleged racial discrimination is as abhorrent as all of the sexual harassment cases that are rightfully now being prosecuted, Daniel R. Meachum told Fox News. Educated, well-intentioned, experienced and talented African-Americans are being discriminated against.
Celeslie Henley, a plaintiff in the first version, said she worked at CNN for seven years until she was allegedly fired after emailing the human resources department about discriminatory treatment. The suit also claimed that the liberal network had a glass ceiling on the career paths of African-American staffers.
The original lawsuit had 175 plaintiffs, but Meachum said 30 more alleged victims have come forward since Judge William Duffey Jr. essentially ruled in July the case didnt 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.
The attorney also said he understands proving discrimination is a challenge, but said the 205 plaintiffs involved are not overly sensitive, walking around with chips on their shoulder.
