Man From Hostos Who Applied To Strive For Job Sues For Discrimination Against Disabled

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 9 – Delroy Askins went back to school at Hostos Community College in The Bronx in 2012. In 2018 he applied for a job at Project Strive in East Harlem.

But the interview panel did not ask him a single follow up question, unlike others, and he did not get the job.   

He sued, and has alleged that "Strive has some serious problems when it comes to to people with disabilities." 

On September 9 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter held a pre-motion conference. Inner City Press covered it.   

Strive, represented by the Jackson Lewis law firm, is preparing a motion to dismiss, on gorunds that the court lacks jurisdiction and the Askins "should be collaterally estopped from asserting Federal claims." The motion is due October 8, and reply January 12.

The case is Askins v. Weinberg et al., 19-cv-8793 (Carter)
