Judge dismisses discrimination lawsuit against Apple

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh granted Apple a win on Friday in an employee's discrimination suit alleging the tech giant forced him to transfer stores for reporting his co-workers’ racist remarks, reports the Law 360 website.

Philly resident Cori Fisher worked at the Philadelphia Apple Store from 2010 to 2016, first as an Apple Store “expert” and later as a “specialist.” According to allegations contained in his lawsuit, the Apple Store racially profiled black customers. Fisher claims that he witnessed a store manager asking a cop to get some black teenagers out of the store, and he says that the Apple Store told its employees to “closely monitor” black customers in general. 

His lawsuit described the store’s actions as “racist.” Fisher says he was fired in April 2016 in retaliation for speaking up about the alleged discrimination.
