Capitol Communicator reports that AdWeek Named The Washington Post "Hottest in News" and "Hottest in Social Media"

“WaPo quietly settles age, race discrimination lawsuit”, Reports NY Post

by | Aug 23, 2017

“The Washington Post quietly settled an age and race discrimination suit filed by former advertising executive David DeJesus, who is black and who claimed that discrimination was the reason he was terminated by his white boss in 2011 after an 18-year career, reports the New York Post, which added that “The Washington Post said he was fired for “willful neglect of duty and insubordination.” A three-judge appeals court last year cleared the way for a jury to hear the case after reversing a ruling by the lower court that initially tossed the suit.

““A jury could properly conclude that the Washington Post’s proffered reason [for the termination of DeJesus] is so unreasonable that it provokes suspicion of pretext,” the appeals court said.

“The settlement was first reported by Observer.com.”
