Woman Wins $687,000 Discrimination Suit

A sports bar in Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood has been ordered to pay $687,000 in damages to a former bartender who said she was racially discriminated against and fired for being Black.

Briggitta Hardin was hired to train at Redline Bar in Dec. 2010, but was fired on her first day.

According to Hardin, when she met Mick Dadlani, who owns the establishment after arriving for her first shift, he refused to speak to her and shake her hand. Hardin was subsequently fired.
