Yesterday, a complaint was filed against the New York Times in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York. According the the complaint:

Plaintiffs and classes of similarly situated older, Black and/or female current and former employees of the Times are victims of discriminatory barriers to equal opportunity advancement, which has included the unlawful denial of promotions, compensation commensurate with younger white employees, and equality with respect to the terms and conditions of their employment, including, in many cases, the termination of such employment.
