Davis Polk Sued For Discrimination Gets Attorneys Fees For Late Discovery

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 29 –  Kaloma Cardwell filed a racial discrimination case against his employer, the "white shoe" law firm of Davis Polk and Wardwell.

He'd been employed there from September 2014 through August 2018, then alleged that "defendants quarterbacked and permitted a playbook that marginalized, discriminated against and retaliated against Plaintiff, the only Black male associate in the Davis Polk's 2014 associate class." Then there was a delay in discovery.

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding on July 28. Inner City Press covered it.  

Amid Davis Polk complaints, Judge Woods granted a request to extended the discovery deadlines - but said that costs had to be paid to Davis Polk. But, he said, it was not the plaintiff's fault.

 He had a right to rely on his attorneys to know the deadline. So his lawyers will pay the costs.

 The case is Cardwell v. Davis Polk and Wardwell LLP et al, 19cv10256 (Woods)
