The white woman who was recorded on video calling police to claim that a Black bird-watcher was threatening her in New York City's Central Park last year filed suit against her former employer, alleging that the company did not properly consider her fear for personal safety prior to firing her. Amy Cooper filed a federal complaint against investment management company Franklin Templeton on Tuesday, alleging that the company terminated her based on her race and gender while also failing to properly investigate the viral incident that made national headlines.
The lawsuit, filed exactly a year after the Central Park confrontation, requests a jury trial. Christian Cooper, of no relation to Amy Cooper, told NBC News at the time that he approached to ask her to put her dog back on a leash, which is the policy for the Ramble area of Central Park. I've come to realize, especially today, that I think of [the police] as a protection agency, and unfortunately, this has caused me to Black man and a white woman that there are so many people in this country that don't have that luxury," she said. She was also charged with a misdemeanor count of making a false report in the third degree over the incident.
Lockett gave the statement to NBC News on the record last year. The company instead discriminated against Amy Cooper based on her race and gender, the filing alleged, resulting in a loss of earnings and severe emotional distress. He also said he carries treats with him in an effort to get owners to leash their dogs, "because they don't want their dog eating treats" from a stranger. He also told NBC News that he chose to record Amy Cooper making the call because he didn't Black man and a white woman to "dehumanize" himself by giving in to what he considered an attempt at "racial intimidation.
