Noho Star, Inc. v. NYS Division of Human Rights, ___A.D3d___(1st Dep't. April 6, 2010), is an interesting case. The case involves the discharge of cook. However, I bring it to your attention to highlight that a witness who was named, but not called to testify, was protected under the anti-retaliation provisions of the New York Human Rights Law. Additionally, defendant claimed that the plaintiffs damages should be reduced by the amount of unemployment. That claim was rejected because no evidence about unemployment was admitted at trial.
