Atlanta lawyer Daniel Meachum, who previously filed a lawsuit against CNN for racial discrimination, is going after the news organization again.
According to Fox News, the new suit will include “with a new set of plaintiffs and even more alleged victims.”
His previous case was dismissed.
Meachum says, “educated, well-intentioned, experienced and talented African-Americans are being discriminated against.”
The original lawsuit had 175 plaintiffs, but Meachum said 30 more alleged victims have come forward since Judge William Duffey Jr. essentially ruled in July the case didn’t have enough to move forward as a class action suit. “We are drafting a new complaint, line by line, addressing the issues that he outlined for us,” Meachum said.
The attorney also said he understands proving discrimination is “a challenge,” but said the 205 plaintiffs involved “are not overly sensitive, walking around with chips on their shoulder.”
Meachum is optimistic his new case will “be victorious”:
Meachum said the new suit’s 205 accusers will be named in an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission action, and have a 90-day right-to-sue letter.
“My office has been contacted consistently from people who worked there… talking about the discrimination at CNN,” Meachum said.

Meachum said “95 percent” of the 205 people claim their discrimination occurred within the past four years.
“With the information that we have, and will get during discovery, I think we will be able to survive a motion for summary judgement. At that point, I think we will be victorious,” Meachum said.
Daily Wire previously reported CNN’s attacks on President Donald Trump and accusations of him being a racist amount to “irony”:
Whether it’s Don Lemon claiming that anyone who supports Trump is “complicit” in racism or bitter Ana Navarro calling Trump a “misogynist racist bigoted pig,” CNN’s obsession with trying to connect Trump to racism is obvious.
Ironically, the network that desperately tries to portray itself as strongly opposed to racism is being sued for just that — racial discrimination.
