In 2000, Benedict Morelli and Martha McBrayer represented five plaintiffs
of minority backgrounds who claimed they were
discriminated against because of their race at their workplace, NBC.
We successfully defeated NBC's motion for summary judgment. U.S. District
Judge Shira Sheindlin began her order denying NBC's motion by saying, "
Something is rotten in the offices of NBC."
After the order was issued,
NBC quickly came to the negotiating table and we were able to resolve each of our plaintiffs' cases satisfactorily.
This case is not unique. Our attorneys have litigated on behalf of victims
of discrimination against some of the largest and most powerful companies
in the country.
