If you've heard me say it once, you've heard me say it a hundred times: Anybody can sue anyone for any or no reason. Debrahlee Lorenzana is the latest to prove this point.
Lorenzana filed a lawsuit claiming she was fired from her job at a New York bank for being too good-looking. The lawsuit alleges that she was ordered to "[r]efrain from wearing certain items of clothing, in particular, turtleneck tops, pencil skirts, fitted business suits, or other properly tailored clothing. In blatantly discriminatory fashion, [she] was advised that as a result of the shape of her figure, such clothes were purportedly 'too distracting' for her male colleagues and supervisors to bear." Other female workers were allowed to wear similar clothing, she alleges, but "[t]heir general unattractiveness rendered moot their sartorial choices, unlike [hers]."
