Italian Motorcycle Corp Dainese Discriminates Kaliman Ali Said Now Discovery Abuse Reply

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 26 – Kalimah Ali sued Italian motorcycle and sports apparel company Dainese for discrimination.   

 On November 2, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katharine Polk Failla held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Among the issues was discovery abuse - and cutting the judge off, repeatedly, during the telephone proceeding. Then things turned to Ms. Ali herself - an allegedly undisclosed criminal proceeding, stalking, an unemployment claim.

On December 4 Judge Failla held another conference, before referring the matter to SDNY Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang. Talk turned to Ali not having told her lawyer about previous lawsuits she filed, including against Starbucks, and a conversation recorded by a phone in her purse. The defendants "continue to see appropriate sanctions in response to Plaintiff's discovery violations."

On March 17, Judge Failla held another proceeding and Inner City Press again covered it. This time, defendants ramped it up, stating that during her deposition the plaintiff admitted to discovery violations. Judge Failla remarked that if true, this would be a problem.

Now on May 26, Kalimah Ali has filed a memo of law and affidavit opposing the defendants' motion for sanctions. She says "I suffer from PTSD... I informed my counsel that I did not wish to provide documents related to my confidential name change... To the extent that I have not produced responsive documentation (such as documents related to my prior lawsuit against Starbucks and two lawsuits regarding car accidents) it is because I am not in possession of these documents."

The case is Ali v. Dainese USA, Inc. et al., 19-cv-2422 (Failla)
