Janitor Who Was Told To Work With Hurt Toe Dropped 1 Defendant Now Settles With Others

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Aug 27 – Cesar Sierra starting working as a superintendent in 206 Audubon Avenue and 551 West 175th Street in Upper Manhattan in May 2019. Both buildings were managed, but not owned, by Alma Realty Corp.

Sierra injured his right big toe but was told he had to keep working. He sued. 

 On August 26, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman had a fairness hearing on dropping Alma from the case. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Sierra's lawyer explained how taking one-third of Alma's $10,000 payment was fair, compared to what he said is his usual $450 an hour rate. 

  Judge Liman said when it is only one party being dropped, he cites Rules 21 and 15. The lawyers said that was OK.

  Now on February 17, the other defendants came for a fairness hearing on their settlement. Inner City Press again covered it. Cheeks v. Freeport Pancake House, needless to say, was cited. Inner City Press will continue to cover these cases.

The case is Sierra v. Alma Realty Corp. et al., 19-cv-8455 (Liman)
