The Just Energy lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against an individual named John Doe, who was the director of the New York City Independent Budget Office, which is a government agency responsible for the financial affairs of the city. Mr. Doe was fired by the New York City Mayor Bloomberg shortly before Christmas of 2020, as soon as he was made aware of the many problems that the mayor had been facing in terms of public finances.

John was a seasoned financial officer and the former head of the city’s budget office, but after he was terminated, he lost his job. According to the lawsuit, John was then subjected to a hostile work environment, where he was made to feel like a fool, and treated with disrespect.

During the course of his employment, John met with several officials, including the mayor’s office, the City Comptroller, and the Manhattan district attorney. However, neither the mayor nor any of the officials would make him aware of what the problems with the mayor were. Instead, they offered him false assurances that the mayor was doing everything possible to rectify the financial mess he was in.

According to the lawsuit, John began to worry that he might not be able to afford to pay his bills, and that the mayor was trying to intimidate him into paying off his debts by threatening him with jail time. John contacted the company that employs him, but they said that they would not help until he found another job. This did not satisfy John, and as the months went by, his financial situation became even worse. In November, he made a personal visit to the Mayor Bloomberg’s office, seeking to discuss his case with the mayor.

When John arrived at the mayor’s office, he was met by a number of City Comptroller and Budget officials. They questioned John about his financial situation and threatened him that he could be arrested if he did not pay up. They also threatened to take John’s personal belongings to auction, claiming that they belonged to the mayor.

When John left, he said that he was afraid of being arrested and had decided to file a Just Energy lawsuit against the city, based on these threats. In June of 2020, he was awarded a judgment of $1 million from the court and was given the choice between accepting the judgment or pursuing a separate litigation against the mayor for his past wrongful dismissal.

There was an internal investigation conducted by the City Comptroller of the claims against John, but the findings were never released. In addition to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs are asking the court to order the city to pay John past due wages, medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, lost wages, as well as other compensation related to the termination of his employment.

As of now, John has not received any payment from the city. He was not notified of his right to pursue a lawsuit until this past September when the case was presented to him by his lawyer, despite the fact that he was never notified prior to his firing or dismissal.

The suit is also supported by the Legal Aid Society, the National Organization of Women Lawyers, and Women in Politics for New York. Other supporters include the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, and the National Organization of Women. According to John, this lawsuit is the only way that he can get his name back in the public eye after his firing and dismissal from the Just Energy. He wants the mayor and City Comptroller and Budget to compensate him for all his damages suffered because of his wrongful discharge.

In addition to this lawsuit, John has also filed an unfair labor practices complaint against the company, charging that they discriminated against him by keeping him from other opportunities in the business. He also claims that he was forced to work without adequate benefits. and was subjected to sexual harassment.

In addition to the lawsuit, the mayor and city have a number of options available to them to defend their actions. They can offer to dismiss the case, accept the judgment, or proceed with their original claims against John, or attempt to settle out of court.
