Former CC associate sues firm for discrimination over job cuts
A former Clifford Chance (CC) associate has sued the firm for discrimination, claiming it targeted women and minorities when it laid off six US associates in 2007, reports The New York Law Journal. In a complaint filed on Thursday (28 October) in New York's Supreme Court, Karen Ramdhanie said that on the eve of the layoffs, two white male associates were transferred out of her group, leaving just black lawyers and women to be laid off. "They were so blatant in their discrimination," Ramdhanie said in an interview.
