Former Prosecutors File Discrimination Lawsuit Against Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner

February 18th, 2020

Mark Gilson, a longtime homicide prosecutor, and E. Marc Costanzo, a former chief of the Special Investigations Unit, have filed an employment discrimination lawsuit against newly appointed Philadelphia District Attorney, Larry Krasner. Representing Gilson and Constanzo in court are Philadelphia lawyers Sidney L. Gold of Sidney L. Gold & Associates, PC. and Robert Davitch of Sidkoff, Pincus & Green.

The two former employees are suing their old boss and the city of Philadelphia for allegations of age discrimination. This is the sixth alleged age or race discrimination case that has been filed against Krasner since his start in office. Krasner is in the process of building a new administration with lawyers who share similar progressive views.

The other lawsuits were filed by homicide prosecutors Carlos Vega and Joseph Whitehead Jr., Michelle Seidner, who worked in the Economic and Cyber Crime Unit, and the former director of the Victim Witness Services Unit, Tami Levin. In January of 2018, all six of the ex-employees were given the option to either resign or be fired just a mere three days after Krasner took office. Gilson and Costanzo both refused to resign and instead faced immediate termination. They believe that they were targeted because of age and were replaced by younger, less experienced attorneys. Krasner’s spokesperson, Janet Roh, released a statement saying that the firing of employees can happen at any time by the district attorney. Roh neglected to comment on the office lawsuit. Gilson and Costanzo seek monetary compensation for past and future loss of wages and benefits.
