‘New York Post’ asks court to reconsider dismissing Sandra Guzman’s suit against them
Here's the latest development in the legal saga of Sandra Guzman versus the New York Post: Attorneys for the tabloid asked a U.S. District Court yesterday to reconsider tossing out their motion to dismiss Guzman's lawsuit against the paper.
In a case that has dogged editor-in-chief Col Allan for the past several years, Guzman, a former editor, alleges that she was harassed and fired for speaking out against a cartoon printed in the tabloid that was widely perceived as being racist.
She sued the Post and its parent company, News Corp.
On Oct. 29, U.S. District Court Judge Lorna Schofield granted News Corp. its motion to dismiss the suit, but she did not do the same for the Post.
Now the Post is asking the court to "reconsider its Order and grant summary judgment dismissing Guzman’s Amended Complaint with prejudice."
"We look forward to presenting the truth about the remaining charges – which are completely unfounded - to a jury,” a Post spokesperson told Capital several weeks ago.
"We are extremely pleased with Judge Schofield’s thoughtful opinion and look forward to holding the NY Post and Col Allan responsible at trial for their discriminatory actions," Guzman's lawyer recently told The Huffington Post.
