Last week, a Manhattan federal judge approved a petition by Walker to move forward with the discovery portion of his suit and have the parties deposed.

With the decision today, the defendants’ delay tactics must stop, and Mr. Walker’s quest for justice can move forward.”
A partial motion filed by the defendants to dismiss one of Walker’s claims is currently pending.
