A screen grab from the Twitter account of Juli Briskman, who is suing her former employer. Briskman claims she was fired over her expression of disapproval as Trump’s motorcade passed her.

The Virginia-based company that fired an employee who was captured in a viral photo flipping her middle finger at President Donald Trump’s motorcade is rebuffing her claims in a lawsuit that says she was unlawfully terminated.

Akima LLC, a federal government contractor, fired Juli Briskman in October 2017, only days after she was photographed giving a middle finger to the Trump motorcade as it passed by her on a Saturday cycling outing. A journalist traveling with the motorcade shot the image, and the photo quickly rocketed across the web and national television. Briskman posted the photo on her Twitter and Facebook pages.
