Lifeguard Who Sued NYC Parks Department Wants To Be Her Own Expert Witness in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 24 –      Henna Shim-Larkin was to work for the NYS Parks Department, at the Tompkins Square Mini Pool on East 10th Street, after being in the lifeguard training program and passing the final test.    But on the day she was to report, she had a doctor's appointment. Next, she had an appointment with Immigration. Harassment followed, and she left a voicemail she could not continue to work, feeling unsafe. She sued.

 On November 24 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Kevin Nathaniel Fox held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Now more the four years into the litigation, Ms. Shim-Larkin has put in to testify, herself, as an expert witness.

The City said it is untimely. After Judge Fox so ruled, Ms. Shim-Larkin said she wanted to respond. Judge Fox to his credit did listen.

The case is Shim-Larkin v. City of New York, 16-cv-6099 (Nathan / Fox)
