Pregnancy Discrimination Lawsuit Against the NY County Lawyers Association

In a recently-filed lawsuit – captioned Leibowitz v. New York County Lawyers Association et al, NY Sup. Ct. Kings Cty. Index No. 517381/2019 (filed Aug. 7, 2019) – plaintiff alleges that the New York County Lawyers Association (and other individually-named defendants) discriminated against her because of her gender/pregnancy and retaliated against her. Plaintiff alleges, inter alia, that defendant refused to give her a place to express breast milk, asked plaintiff whether she planned on having any more kids, and terminated plaintiff while she was on pregnancy leave. She asserts claims under the New York State and City Human Rights Laws. (This firm does not represent any party in this lawsuit.)
