Tri-County Care LLC Is Sued & Calls Plaintiff's Demand Too High But Mediator's 1/6 OK

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 7 – Tina Forbes worked for Tri-County Care LCC, a provider of disability care services on Long Island, New York. She was fired, she says because she was a pregnant woman of color.

 Also naming Tri-County's Japhe Deliat, she sued.      

     On January 7, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Ronnie Abrams held a status conference. Inner City Press covered it.   

The plaintiff's lawyer said he thought the case could be settled soon based, he said, on what the mediator had said. Defense counsel from Garfunkel Wild P.C. disagreed, saying that plaintiff's number was unreasonable.  

  Then the actual numbers were said.

 For now, Inner City Press will only report that the defendants understanding of plaintiff's demand was six times higher than what plaintiff, on the record, said that the mediator had suggested. 

 Judge Abrams said she didn't want to get involved in the numbers but urged counsel to tell clients how much discovery and depositions who cost, and submit a status letter in a week.

The case is Forbes v. Tri-County Care LLC, 21-cv-1366 (Abrams)
