9/23/2014 – Filed disability discrimination & breach of contract lawsuit against 92Y

Mr. Wigdor represented Deborah Adler, as the Administratrix of the Estate of Sol Adler, in an action against 92Y. As alleged in the complaint the late Mr. Adler, former Executive Director, was given two choices after being hospitalized with depression: resign or be fired. Within months of diagnosis, Mr. Adler was fired in breach of his employment agreement which permitted termination only “for cause” and only after a 30-day notice and cure period. As alleged in the complaint, as a result of the deterioration of the relationship with the institution he had dedicated his life to building, Mr. Adler took his own life in May of 2014.  The case received major media attention and was reported on in an extensive New York Magazine article.
