An attorney with Larkin, Axelrod, Ingrassia & Tetenbaum, an Orange County law firm that was sued for refusing to allow a client to bring her service dog into its office, has said that it did not intend to discriminate against the client and that one of its employees acted against firm policy in refusing to allow the dog inside.

The lawsuit, Klejmont v. Larkin Axelrod Ingrassia & Tetenbaum, 11-cv-08003, was filed in the federal court in White Plains on Tuesday by the Southern District U.S. Attorney on behalf of Lauren Klejmont, who retained the firm to represent her in a personal injury action (NYLJ, Nov. 9). It also names one of the firm’s partners, John Ingrassia, as a defendant.
