Scripps News: The Supreme Court Upholding Ban On Racial Gerrymandering: Attorney Andrew Lieb Shares Insights

In an interview with Scripps News, Attorney Andrew Lieb discussed the court decision finding Alabama's congressional map in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Lieb provided insights on the implications of the ruling, highlighting its significance for voting rights in Alabama and nationwide.

The Impact on Voting Rights:

Lieb emphasized that the ruling is based on the 15th Amendment, an anti-discrimination law. The court found the district boundaries to be discriminatory, allowing only one African-American majority district. This decision reinforces the need to protect voting rights and prevent discrimination.

A Shift in the Supreme Court:

Lieb discussed Chief Justice John Roberts' role in the Supreme Court. Roberts aims to maintain the court's legitimacy by standing against discrimination. This decision represents his attempt to reassert influence and promote a balanced approach within the court.

Advocating Unity and a Future Free from Discrimination:

Attorney Andrew Lieb passionately reflects on the enduring discussions surrounding discrimination laws, acknowledging the difficulty of empathizing with others' experiences. He emphasizes the importance of anti-discrimination laws and encourages a discourse centered around supporting one another. Lieb calls for unity, urging a departure from tribal politics and envisioning a future where discrimination is eradicated.

Scripps News Coverage: Lieb at Law Fights for Fairness Against Discrimination and Retaliation at Three Village School District

Lieb at Law is standing up for the rights of families and their children in school systems. We're representing the Graziano family, who faced discrimination and retaliation at their son's school.

Despite having an Individualized Education Program (IEP), which specified a minor student's access to a single-occupancy bathroom, as a reasonable accommodation, the school failed to honor these accommodations and actively denied the minor student's use of the bathroom. When Mr. Graziano advocated for his son's rights, the school retaliated against him by banning him from all school district property. This denial caused unnecessary stress and robbed the family of cherished memories for each of the family's three children who attended the district.

We've filed complaints with the New York State Division of Human Rights, and we're fighting for justice. No parent should face retaliation for advocating for their child's rights, and no child should suffer because their disability accommodations aren't honored.

We want to make it clear - schools must be welcoming places for parents and students alike. We're determined to protect families from facing such discrimination in the future.

Stay tuned for updates as we work tirelessly for justice. Remember, you have rights, and Lieb at Law is here to defend them.

PIX 11: Former Police Officer Retaliated Against by School for Defending Autistic Son's Rights. Lieb at Law Advocates for Justice

At Lieb at Law, P.C., we believe in protecting the rights of individuals who face unjust treatment. Today, we want to shed light on an alarming incident involving one of our clients, a courageous father and former police officer, who has recently faced retaliation from a local school district.

The heart of this story revolves around a dedicated father who took a stand against an unfair bathroom rule. Despite his valiant efforts to protect his autistic child's well-being, he became the target of unjust treatment from the school administration.

Our client, a former police officer who has devoted his life to upholding the law and safeguarding others, found himself banned from school property as a consequence of his bravery and commitment to fighting for what is right. It is disheartening to witness such retaliation against someone who simply sought equality and inclusivity for his child.

At Lieb at Law, P.C., we firmly believe that no one should face discrimination or retaliation for advocating for their loved ones. We stand with our client and his family, ready to support them in their pursuit of justice.

Attorney Andrew Lieb Offers New CLE for Attorneys: Proving Emotional Distress Damages in a Discrimination Case

Proving Emotional Distress Damages in a Discrimination Case

Discrimination law is top of mind for most attorneys and businesses throughout the country. We all like to discuss the latest news headlines and debate our culture wars to determine who is right and wrong, but in reality, that discussion misses the point. The real question is what is the cost of being wrong. For example, while pecuniary damages (such as back pay and front pay) are known and tangible, have you considered non-pecuniary damages in your case evaluation? In discrimination law, the largest category of damages is emotional distress, which can vary depending on the proof you have and your ability to prove it in court. In this course, Andrew Lieb will teach you how to gather and prove these intangible damages, which will make or break your discrimination case.

Employers Required to Post New Anti-Discrimination Notice of Employee Rights

Federal law requires employers to post a notice created by the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC), which summarizes the federal laws and explains filing procedures. 

The notice was just updated, and it is called the “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster.

It must be placed conspicuously, in a location that is accessible to all employees, including those with disabilities that limit mobility. To ensure that remote employees receive notice, employers should also post the notice on their website.

Violations have consequences! An employer who fails to comply may be fined up to $612 for each separate offense.

Employer Responsible for 6-Year-Old’s Use of Racial Slurs in Discrimination Case

Did you know that Title VII employment discrimination cases can happen even if the perpetrator is merely the 6-year-old grandson of the owner?

That's the lesson from Chapman v. Oakland Living Center, which is a case against an assisted living facility where the owner’s 6-year-old grandson repeatedly used the n-word against a black employee.

The problem for the employer was - why didn't anyone stop him? The boy’s grandfather either knew or should have known about the conduct and failed to sufficiently respond. Yes, there was a spanking and an unsuccessful attempted to elicit an apology, but that wasn't enough.

The lesson here is don't let hostile, bigoted and offensive remarks occur at the workplace, no matter who is saying them. It's never okay, and failure to stop such remarks will result in a discrimination case. Be warned.
