2nd Circuit tosses discrimination claims against Davis Polk

A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday ruled that Davis Polk & Wardwell did not discriminate against a Hispanic web editor who claimed she received smaller raises than white coworkers and was denied a managerial position because of her race.

The firm is represented by Barry Asen of Epstein Becker & Green.
