Public Hotel of Chrystie Street Sued For Racism Seeks Confidential Order In SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 13 – David Riley sued Ian Schrager's PUBLIC HOTEL of 215 Chrystie Street for discrimination, citing a July 30, 2019 complaint against Angela Alleyne to his supervisor.   

    On October 13 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

Riley wants to depose Melkis Rosado, Dan Daley, Tim Kirkpatrick, Jasmine Zhang and Daisy Daza, by February 12, 2021. Mediation was unsucessful. There is a confidentiality order.   

But in the complaint, Riley asserts that Alleyne proposed three white Public Advisors (Ethan, Lucas and Sasha) while declining to promote Public Advsors of color (Randy, Willis and Steven). "Plaintiff's skin is light in color. Plaintiff identifies as black and mixed race. There is a racist, classist caste system throughout black and Caribbean culture - one that, on information and belief, influenced Defendant Alleyne's thoughts, decisions and conduct." 

 Judge Gorenstein rules that fact discovery is due by February 12, 2021, and depositions by April 30, as well as motions.

The case is Riley v. IS Chrystie Management LLC et al., 20-cv-1842 (Carter / Gorenstein)
