Last Tuesday, we reported that our office filed a new lawsuit, Madonia v. S 37 Management
, et. al.
The lawsuit alleged violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as a COBRA violation after her employer allegedly fired her within days after learning of her stage III esophogeal cancer diagnosis. We did not expect the national and international interest in the story. The story was widely reported in the United States, The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom, as well as on websites in Australia, Italy, Estonia and Zimbabwe.
