Racial Discrimination Case Against WSJ to Proceed

Carolyn Phillips’ lawsuit against Dow Jones & Co. alleging racial discrimination was the cause of her termination from The Wall Street Journal will go forward, Judge Deborah Batts has ruled. The judge dismissed Phillips’ contention that she was also discriminated against due to a disability. A company spokesperson refuted all allegations of any type of discrimination and said they will defend the action. Associated Press, LA Times 08/18/2009
