Gay Man Sues HELP Homeless Services Which Mocks His Grocery Bag While Call to Mother

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 8 – Michael Barney has sued H.E.L.P. Homeless Service Corporation for discriminating against him as a gay man.   

    On December 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held a conference in the case. Inner City Press covered it.

 HELP's lawyers were pushing to file a motion for summary judgment, saying that Barney could not claim that "mulling a lawsuit" was sufficient to now claim retaliation.

They emphasized that once Barney stepped out of work and said he spoke with his mother, but returned with grocery bags.  

 HELP has been given until February 16 to move for summary judgment, with Barney's opposition due on or before March 19.

The case is Barney v. H.E.L.P. Homeless Service Corporation, 19-cv-5959 (Failla)
