Earlier this week, federal judge Gerald J. Pappert issued a decision in favor of Dr. Jacqueline Junkins-Hopkins, a prominent physician formerly employed by Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has sued the hospital for race discrimination in a case in which Dr. Junkins-Hopkins is represented by John A. Gallagher. This ruling caught the attention of the esteemed Legal Intelligencer, which prides itself on being "the oldest law journal in the United States."

the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
|Regrettably, Still Undermining the American Dream|
Judge Pappert (astutely) rejected that defense:
"Here, Junkins-Hopkins alleges facts to show that she was subjectively aware that she was treated differently from her colleagues," Pappert said. "She presents the racial comments of her supervisors and co-workers only to show a causal connection between this disparate treatment and her race. Junkins-Hopkins is not precluded from maintaining her hostile work environment claim simply because her supervisors and co-workers were adept at hiding their alleged racial animosity from her."
John A. Gallagher of Gallagher Law Group in Berwyn represented Junkins-Hopkins and said that Pappert's opinion was "insightful, particularly given the facts of" the case.
