Greenspoon Marder Settles Bias Lawsuit by Korean-American Shareholder
Jun Chul Whang claimed Greenspoon and a predecessor firm discriminated against him for years before unfairly terminating him.
By Dan Packel | June 17, 2019 at 03:56 PM
Florida-based Am Law 200 firm Greenspoon Marder settled a racial discrimination lawsuit filed by a Korean-American former shareholder, according to a New York court filing.
U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan of the Southern District of New York signed off on the confidential settlement Monday in the suit filed in January by litigator Jun Chul Whang. Each side covered its own costs.
Whang’s complaint outlined a history of alleged discriminatory conduct over the 24 years he spent at Jacob, Medinger & Finnegan, which he said continued when the firm was acquired by Greenspoon in 2016.
Whang contended the same partners who withheld opportunities at Jacob Medinger were responsible for his termination in 2018.
“Greenspoon’s decision to terminate Whang was not a unilateral one based on neutral business needs but rather one involving a conscious, measured decision to terminate Whang versus the white attorneys/partners in his practice group,” his attorney, Veronica Jung, said in the complaint.
His LinkedIn account lists him as a solo practitioner.
In response to the complaint, Greenspoon contended Whang was terminated for legitimate, nondiscriminatory reasons, including unsatisfactory work performance, failure to adapt to changing trends in his sphere of products liability law and decreased overall profitability.
“Mr. Whang is happy to put this legal dispute behind him and to move on with the rest of his legal career,” Jung said after the court filing.
A spokeswoman for Greenspoon Marder, which represented itself in the case, had no response by deadline.
Founded in Fort Lauderdale, Greenspoon has been in expansion mode for several years. The firm ranks No. 167, up five places in a year, on the Am Law 200 list with $152 million in 2018 revenue and 203 attorneys.
