    Trial Starts for Worker Who Alleges He Was Fired to Appease Latino Employee - My News LA

    A white former United Parcel Service employee deserves substantial damages after being wrongfully fired in 2017 to appease a Latino employee, his attorney told a jury Thursday, but a lawyer for the package delivery company said no wrongdoing occurred and the plaintiff deserves nothing.

    The attorneys made their pitches to a Los Angeles Superior Court jury hearing opening statements in the trial of 47-year-old Mason McConn’s lawsuit. The ex-UPS dock dispatcher from Long Beach alleges wrongful termination, racial discrimination, retaliation and defamation.

    Plaintiffs’ attorney J. Bernard Alexander said the Latino who repeatedly clashed with McConn, UPS driver Pedro Flores, was supervised by the plaintiff and wanted him off the job.

    BadIdeaGuy Coronavirus? What coronavirus?

    Honestly, if you have drivers willing to go to bat for a supervisor, that makes it sound like wrongful termination.
    Especially given that even the other Latino drivers seem to have no problem with the guy.
