Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: 35394
Magistrate Judge David Cooperthite was assigned to adjudicate my lawsuit against my employer Morgan State University, which involves allegations of racial discrimination. During the proceedings, I perceived a significant bias and favoritism towards my employer from Judge Cooperthite. He warned me that rejecting a settlement offer, which I deemed inadequate, might lead to losing the case and potential termination from my job.
