A Korean-American former shareholder at Greenspoon Marder who lost his job last year is suing the law firm for racial discrimination, alleging that the Florida-based firm and the New York boutique it acquired in 2016 systematically denied him opportunities because of his race.

Whang said that the same partners who withheld opportunities at Jacob Medinger were also responsible for his termination from Greenspoon.
