Lawsuit Over Context of N Word Use Pits Bronx Riverbay Corp against Local 32BJ on MLK Day

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 16 – Riverbay Corporation in The Bronx sued the Service Employees International Union, Local 32BJ to challenge an arbitrator's order to reinstate union member Damien Reyes, who had addressed an African American co-worker Arthur Taylor as "my N-word."

   On January 6, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

  Riverbay is pointing to New York State cases about the "n word," one of which (Gomez v. Cablevision, Manhattan, 2016) held that "permissive use of such an offensive word is more than a petty slight or trivial inconvenience." 

    Judge Liman granted until January 30 for a motion to remand the case to state court, with summary judgment briefing deferred until the motion for remand is ruled on.

 The case is Riverbay Corporation v. Service Employees International Union, Local 32BJ, 22-cv-10994 (Liman)
