A Florida attorney has filed a discrimination suit alleging his former employer, Astigarraga Davis, fired him because he is gay. Scott Allan Burr alleges that law firm leaders refused to promote him to equity partner after promising he would be considered within a year of joining the firm, gave him poor reviews and refused a request for time off when it was honoring requests from straight attorneys. But the firm said in a court filing that it knew Burr's sexual orientation before hiring him, and that he quit.
