Court dismisses discrimination suit against Wyeth


Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc. has won another lawsuit filed by a former employee who alleged she was the victim of racial discrimination at the company’s Pearl River plant.

U.S. District Court Judge William Conner of White Plains dismissed the lawsuit filed by Nadine Aspilaire, who worked for Wyeth from 2000 to 2005.

Aspilaire is one of eight black current and former workers to sue the company for racial discrimination. The company has now won five of the lawsuits at the trial court level and three are still pending.

Aspilaire and her lawyer sought to show that the company retailiated against her after she complained she was being treated unfairly because of her race.
