Retaliation Claim Sufficiently Alleged Against Principal Under the NYC Human Rights Law

In a recent case, Aguilar v. Struhl-Nasjletti, 2018 NY Slip Op 32410(U) (NY Sup. Ct. Bx. Cty Index 0023250/2016 May 18, 2018), the court held, inter alia, that plaintiff guidance counselor sufficiently alleged a retaliation claim under the New York City Human Rights Law. In sum, plaintiff alleged that after filing a lawsuit in 2012 accusing the defendant of discrimination, settling that case, and being placed back under defendant’s immediate supervision, upon resuming work she was subjected to “malicious, intentional and unfair differential treatment which … any reasonable person can infer was perpetrated in retaliation for plaintiff having commenced the 2012 action.”
