The Village Voice's Michael Musto reports that Bloomberg Media's former International Managing Director of Television Brian Martinez plans to hit the company with an anti-discrimination lawsuit:
After a domestic violence incident with his then-partner, Martinez says his employer deemed him mentally incapacitated to continue working, though he says a doctor found him perfectly capable.
And Bloomberg seems to be well aware of it, given the statement they released:
"Throughout his 10-plus years at Bloomberg, Brian was open about his sexual orientation and was promoted multiple times. We have always been a leader in providing benefits to domestic partners, and we covered the health benefits of Brian's partners including an international relocation of his partner from Tokyo to London. Any hint that his termination was related to sexual orientation is ludicrous to anyone who knows Brian or knows this company."
