In reversing a lower court’s decision, the New York Supreme Court recently agreed to dismiss a race- and age-discrimination lawsuit filed against New York Westchester Square Medical Center (NYWSMC).
The court ruled that NYWSMC didn’t discriminate when it fired a 60-year-old black nurse during a downsizing, even though a white nurse in the same position kept her job.
NYWSMC was able to show that it terminated the plaintiff as part of a work force reduction, a nondiscriminatory act.
