Lawsuit filed against New York Mets for Wrongful Termination following Pregnancy

The Ivy League-educated former head of New York Mets ticket sales is allegedly suing the club Wednesday, saying she was fired last month after insults and humiliation were hurled at her by the club owner’s son, a top team executive who she claimed was upset that she had a child without being married. Leigh Castergine’s Brooklyn federal court lawsuit named Sterling Mets Front Office LLC and Jeffrey Wilpon, the club’s chief operating officer, as defendants. It sought unspecified damages and asked that the Mets be stopped from future discrimination. It said the club recognized and rewarded Castergine after she was hired in December 2010 as vice president of ticket sales and service to modernize the Mets ticket sales until she learned she was pregnant in August 2013. Kristensen LLP has successfully handled similar cases and obtained favorable settlements on behalf of women who were wrongfully terminated following their pregnancy.
