The lawsuit alleges that on October 28, 2010 Defendant Jeffrey Farley, kitchen manager at The Roger Smith Hotel at 501 Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, pulled a white pillow case from a towel bag and pulled it over his head and directed his attention towards Jones in the presence of Defendants Daniel B. Mowles, Salvatore Maida and employee Justin Palmer and asked Jones: “Julius, how does that make you feel? Do you feel insulted?” as his white male colleagues mocked him and laughed, according to the lawsuit. Defendant Jeffrey Farley acted as if he was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
