Mayor Bloomberg to be Deposed in Discrimination Suit - 1010wins.com

Read original...

A lawyer says Mayor Michael Bloomberg will be deposed in two weeks in connection with a lawsuit alleging the financial services company he founded discriminated against women.

Attorney Richard Roth says Bloomberg will answer questions on May 14 related to lawsuits alleging over 80 women were discriminated against at Bloomberg L.P. Roth represents several of the plaintiffs. The mayor is not a defendant in the lawsuits.

Roth says lawyers in the case want to ``explore how hands on Mr. Bloomberg really was.''

No trial date has been set for lawsuits brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and individual plaintiffs.

The company has said it believes the claims are without merit.
