Womp Womp of the Day (Amy Cooper, Racist)

Remember Amy Cooper? The White lady who called the police on a Black man watching birds in Central Park? She got fired from her job and her employer said: 'We do not tolerate racism of any kind.' Amy then sued her ex-employer. Her lawsuit was just thrown out.

2. Probably Not

I would think a high priced lawyer would understand what "at-will" means.
The company doesn't need any better reason to terminate beyond "you embarrassed the company".
We had a VP axed for getting hammered and starting a ruckus in a fancy restaurant which was a business function with customers. He was a level 16 employee (the CEO is an 18), and was gone the next day.
He was still 2,000 miles from home. They met him at the airport to take his phone, laptop & security badge.
All he did was embarrass the company. That was enough.
