N.Y. Man Claims Boss Fired Him For His Weight: 'You Got So Fat!'


A Brooklyn man has sued his former employer for firing him because of his weight, court documents show.

A lawsuit, filed June 19 in the Kings County Supreme Court, maintains that Jerry Greenberg, the owner of the art framing store Frame it in Brooklyn Inc., withdrew an offer of employment to Seth Bogdanove because he was too overweight.

Bogdanove worked at Frame it in Brooklyn from 1994 to 2008, according to court documents. He told ABC News that he did not want to discuss why he left the store, but emphasized that his decision had nothing to do with medical issues.
