A judge ruled today in favor of The New York Post in a lawsuit first filed back in 2009 by former Post employees Austin Fenner and Ikimulisa Livingston. The lawsuit alleged that the reporters were subjected to racial discrimination during their time at the newspaper.
A New York Post spokesperson sent over this statement in reaction to the judge’s ruling:
“We are very pleased with the Court’s decision to dismiss the Austin Fenner and Ikimulisa Livingston case in its entirety. As we have maintained for four years and as the federal Court held today in no uncertain terms, their claims of a hostile work environment, disparate treatment and retaliation were completely baseless. This decision represents total vindication for the Post as well as for its senior editors Col Allan, Michelle Gotthelf and Dan Greenfield, who were viciously attacked in the plaintiffs’ mendacious complaint.”
