Perceived-As Disability (Alcoholism) Discrimination Lawsuit Against Rue La La

Below is the complaint, captioned Davis v. Rue La La, NY Sup. Ct. NY Cty. 152558/2018 (filed March 22, 2018), in which plaintiff asserts (inter alia) that defendant “treated [plaintiff] less well because it perceived her as disabled, which culminated in [plaintiff]’s termination” and that “[t]he circumstances surrounding [defendant]’s conduct towards [plaintiff], including HR’s discriminatory conduct and remarks to [plaintiff], gives rise to a very real inference that the actual basis for [defendant]’s conduct against [plaintiff] was [defendant]’s unlawful perception that [plaintiff] needed to undergo extensive treatment for alcoholism and would otherwise require an extensive amount of time to recover.” She seeks recovery under the New York City Human Rights Law.
