She is the white New York woman who called police on a Black bird-watcher in Central Park last Memorial Day.

She is seeking from her former employer, who quickly fired her, "back pay and bonus, loss of unvested funds and other benefits, front pay or reinstatements, emotional distress damages, attorneys' fees and costs, and interest and punitive damages in an amount to be determined at trial."

I assume that she signed one of those job acceptance letters saying that she understands that her employment can be terminated at any time for any reason or even for no reason. I understand that such agreements have not always held up, but her complaint seems very shaky. But... IANAL.

She's claiming racial discrimination.

Damn. I had no idea there was a such a turf war in central park.

Amy Cooper's lawsuit states that she did not call the police because she was racist, but "because she was alone in the park and frightened to death after being selected as the next target of Christian Cooper, an overzealous birdwatcher engaged in Central Park's ongoing feud between birdwatchers and dog owners."

And to think, there was a highly spirited and outraged thread on this board just last week, discussing whether an employer can legitimately fire an employee for after-hours actions. It's like employees have no idea when their employer can fire them.

Ms. Cooper's lawsuit will probably prove one side or the other in a very convincing manner.
