KL worked for a dentist for less than one year. She was terminated approximately 10 days after she advised her employer that she was pregnant. She filed a charge of discrimination at the New York State Division of Human Rights (NYSDHR), which issued "probable cause" and set the matter down for a hearing. After nearly a dozen witnesses were examined and cross-examined, on June 29, 2007, the NYSHDR on issued an award to KL totaling more than $100,000. The award was later reduced on appeal.
