Mother Fired By Magellan Heathcare Faces Demand For In Person Deposition With Baby

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 5 – Galina Sidanov was working as a nurse for Magellan Healthcare when she became pregnant.

 She requested accommodations, but found herself being discriminated against and pushed out the door. She sued.

  On November 5 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  The lawyer for Magellan was urging against conducting a deposition of Ms. Sidanov by Zoom, making much of the baby noises even on the conference call, and darkly alleging that her husband is involved in the case. 

  Ms. Sidanov expressed deep concerns about conducting an in-person deposition at the law firm's office. In many other SDNY cases, virtual depositions are allowed. Here, Ms. Sidanov's pro se status was cited as a difficult.

The case is Sidanov v. Magellan Healthcare, Inc. et al., 19-cv-5375 (Engelmayer / Cave)
