NYU Settles Race Discrimination Lawsuit for $210,000

New York University agreed to settle a race discrimination lawsuit for $210,000.  The lawsuit was brought by an employee of the university who claimed that he was subjected to racial insults such as "monkey," "gorilla" and "do you want a banana?"  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, brought suit on behalf of the individual.  Our office routinely handles discrimination claims involving race, gender, disability and age.
