After a four-year-long-battle at the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities Legal Division, Partner Diane Mokriski secured a final decision for the defense in an action alleging discrimination in the award of state subcontracts. The complainant, a minority and female business owner, alleged that the defendant, a large contractor with the State of Connecticut, had discriminated against the complainant when it declined to award the complainant with a lucrative subcontract. The complainant also alleged that the defendant company had violated statutory and contractual requirements in the bidding process, which mandated good faith efforts to subcontract with minority-owned businesses. Following extensive witness testimony and written and oral argument, the CHRO’s Legal Division found in favor of OAM’s client, dismissing the complaint in its entirety, on the merits.
