Citibank Employee Sues, Says Good Looks Got Her Fired

June 4, 2010

A woman in New York has sued Citigroup Inc, accusing the bank of firing her for being too good-looking.

The bank believes the lawsuit should be dismissed, or else sent to arbitration, court records show.

Debrahlee Lorenzana alleged that management had warned her not to dress like her female co-workers because her “shapeliness” upset her “easily distracted” male colleagues and supervisors.

The lawsuit was filed in November 2009. It received new attention after The Village Voice published an article about the 33-year-old, 5-foot-6 (1.68-m), 125-pound Lorenzana.
