Pa. attorney claiming bias has no law license
ERIE, Pa. (AP) - August 5, 2011 (WPVI) -- Erie County's executive wants the county's Human Relations Commission to dismiss a discrimination claim filed by an attorney who claims he didn't get a public defender's job because of political bias.
Attorneys for County Executive Barry Grossman say there's a simple reason Jeffrey Del Fuoco didn't get the job: He doesn't have a valid Pennsylvania law license.
Online records kept by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court show Grossman's Pennsylvania law license is "inactive" though he has petitioned to change that.
But Grossman's attorneys tell the Erie Times-News that's reason enough to dismiss his bias claim.
Del Fuoco has claimed he didn't get the job because of age and gender discrimination and because he didn't donate to Grossman's political campaign.
The Human Relations Commission has yet to rule on the case.
