SDNY Security Officer Sues For Medical Exam Unpaid As Judge Failla Hears Of Albany Drive

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 17 – Joseph M. Gallo was working as Security / SSO in the Federal courthouse at 500 Pearl Street for Akal Security back in 2009. In 2014 Inter / Con took over the contract and declined to pay for his required special medical exam. He sued. At least twice.  

 On September 17 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 Judge Failla began by disclosing the obvious, that she works in the SDNY courthouse. Did either party think that was a conflict of interest? No. Defense counsel said, perhaps automatically, that they did not at this time thought it merited recusal.

  Judge Failla patiently inquired into the specifics of Gallo's claim, the falling through a settlement, a drive to Albany.

These case is Gallo v. Inter-Con Security, 20-cv-4879 (Failla)
