Margaret Sipser Leibowitz v. Cornell University, et al. - 4/21/2006
Case Summary: Ms. Leibowitz was a professor at Cornell's School of Industrial & Labor Relations. In 2002, Cornell terminated her employment. Ms. Leibowitz commenced an action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleging gender and age discrimination, violation of the Equal Pay Act, and breach of her tenure contract. The District Court dismissed all of Ms. Leibowitz's claims. We appealed the District Court's decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. David Marek successfully argued the appeal, and on April 21, 2006, the Second Circuit reversed the Southern District's decision, reinstating all of Ms. Leibowitz's employment-related claims.
