SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 21 – Ferlande Milord-Francois, an attorney of Haitian descent, sued the New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General for discrimination, saying she was told by Robyn Henzel, “Your angry black face scares me.”
On March 21, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.
Judge Liman inquired into sovereign immunity arguments, and said the five day trial should start on December 5, with a final pre-trial conference on November 28.
He said the case had previously been assigned to now-retired Magistrate Judge Kevin Fox and was unclear, so far, if new Magistrate Judge Jennifer E. Willis is the one taking over the assigned.
The case is Milord-Francois v. NYS Office of the Medicaid Inspector General et al., 19-cv-179 (Liman)
