The law firm of Thompson Wigdor & Gilly has been sanctioned $15,000 for allowing a client in an employment discrimination suit to conceal that she had obtained a new job for substantially more money.

Southern District Judge William Pauley said Thompson Wigdor allowed Violet Fryer to testify at a deposition last year that she “didn’t hear back” and “didn’t get the job” when in fact she had been offered and accepted a new job at another company nearly two weeks before her testimony.
