In November, 2000, Plaintiff William Palmer suffered a work related injury that debilitated him and kept him from work for eight consecutive months. When Palmer returned to work, he was served a Notice of Intention to Remove for the letter incident. Palmer, who is black, claimed the move was in retaliation for an internal complaint he filed concerning sexual harassment of female employees by other employees of the DCDC. The case settled prior to trial for $30,000.
Palmer was represented by James Gross of the Chevy Chase, Maryland law firm Thyden, Gross and Callahan. See: Palmer v. Washington, USDC DC, Case No. 1:02-CV-02529.
