Ngo v. Bristol Myers Squibb
Santa Clara Superior Court Case No. 107CV099700
We represented a pharmaceutical sales representative in a case of race discrimination and retaliation. The client had some of the best sales numbers nationwide, and yet was counseled for "poor communications skills"–code words for a strong accent. When he objected to the discrimination, he was fired. The case settled before trial.
