The suit alleged that the company displayed a pattern of discrimination against women who took maternity leave, and that “Michael Bloomberg is responsible for the creation of the systemic, top-down culture of discrimination.”

“‘J’accuse!’ is not enough in court,” Judge Loretta Preska wrote in her decision. “Evidence is required.” Good point! For a girl.
