Hurricane Katrina has even affected the Supreme Court docket. The Court last week pulled from its November argument calendar the employment discrimination case Arbaugh v. Y&H Corp. Y&H owns the Moonlight Cafe in the lower Garden District of New Orleans, where Jenifer Arbaugh claims she was sexually harassed by the owner. The restaurant apparently escaped unscathed from the hurricane, but the lawyers did not. “I didn’t bring my Arbaugh file with me when I left town,” says Jeffrey Schwartz of Watkins Ludlum Winter & Stennis, who left before the hurricane hit but thought he would return a few days later. Since the storm he’s been staying with in-laws in Atlanta. Schwartz says his secretary was able to retrieve the file, and that he would have been ready to argue, but he says opposing counsel Brett Prendergast apparently suffered a more serious dislocation, and asked the Court to put things off. The justices quickly complied. “Everybody’s been very sensitive to the situation,” says Schwartz. Prendergast could not be reached. The case will likely be argued in late January, which poses a problem of a different kind for Schwartz: his wife is pregnant and due in February.
