Default CNN faces another racial discrimination lawsuit, lawyer says

Quote:
The network news channel’s 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 didn’t 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 suit will be refiled sometime this year, according to Meachum, who said he is still gathering the necessary paperwork from the new plaintiffs. The news comes as CNN continues to cause problems for parent company Time Warner as it tries to complete an $84.5 billion deal with AT&T.

Meachum said “95 percent” of the 205 people claim their discrimination occurred within the past four years.

“With the information that we have, and will get during discovery, I think we will be able to survive a motion for summary judgement. At that point, I think we will be victorious,” Meachum said.

CNN did not respond to request for comment.

Ruh roh.

CNN is having a rough year.

Liberal racism/sexual perversion is an epidemic in this country. Thank God we have a leader who will stand up to these depraved maniacs.

Weird how you hear all about Bill O'Reilly and Fox News legal issues, but you hear NOTHING about these CNN lawsuits.

Fox News has been facing the same exact lawsuit since earlier this year. Which is surprising, because I didn’t think FN even hired black people.
