Mr. Hopkins alleges that, after it was revealed to his superiors that he is gay and after adverse reactions to this information, he has been passed over repeatedly for promotions for 20 years and has been paid less than other executives who are department heads employed by Defendants.

The complete details of Mr. Hopkins’ allegations of sexual orientation discrimination are available in the attached Complaint.  Mr. Hopkins has no intention of conducting any interviews or speaking publicly at this time, but rather looks forward to proving his case in Court and seeking relief to the fullest extent of the law.
