A Haitian woman is suing one of the world's largest law firms for $75 million, claiming that the firm used her only as window dressing because of her race, fired her for complaining about it, and finally blacklisted her in the New York law community. Caroline Memnon, who is black, says in the lawsuit that despite her $125,000 salary as an associate at the New York office of Londonbased Clifford Chance LLP, she was never given any real work.
