In Omar’s role as Staff Attorney with Lambda Legal, he has litigated issues including gay marriage, housing discrimination, and employment rights under the Civil Rights Act and Constitution. His most prominent representative matters include Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College, the 7th Circuit’s en banc reconsideration of its longstanding precedent that Title VII does not protect gay and lesbian people from employment discrimination, Hamm v. City of New York, a federal lawsuit against New York City and Department of Correction (DOC) officers and supervisors on behalf of a gay man brutally attacked while visiting his incarcerated partner at a Rikers Island correctional facility, and Evancho v. Pine-Richland School District, a case involving a Pennsylvania school district’s recent adoption of a discriminatory transgender bathroom policy.
Please join us for a conversation about the strategy, challenges, and opportunities in litigating LGBT rights in the post-Obergefell era. Bring your questions and an appetite.
Lunch will be provided to those who RSVP.
