Debrahlee Lorenzana, Who Sued Citibank Amid Claims She Was Fired For Being Too Hot, Sues Quest Diagnostics Over Alleged Injuries While Having Blood Drawn

| by

The woman who claimed she lost her job with Citibank for being too sexy is back in the news after she filed a lawsuit against Quest Diagnostics.

Gawker notes that Debrahlee Lorenzana made headlines back in 2010 when she claimed that her managers at Citigroup had fired her because of the way her clothing fit her body.

That case reportedly went to arbitration, and last year Citi announced that, “The case is concluded, and Citibank did not enter into any kind of a settlement with Ms. Lorenzana or provide any payment to her.”

Lorenzana has now filed suit in Queens, N.Y., against Quest Diagnostics, alleging she suffered “serious and severe permanent injuries” while getting her blood drawn in July 2012, according to The New York Daily News.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

The 36-year-old alleges that she was injured by a nurse who “lacked the requisite skills to draw blood without inflicting harm on her subjects.”

The suit, which seeks unspecified money damages, also says Lorenzana suffered “severe shock and damage to her nervous system and certain internal injuries” and “damaged her psychophysical motor skills,” causing her “to suffer severe physical pain and mental anguish as a result.”

The New York Daily News also notes that the same lawsuit names a Queens driver who rear-ended Lorenzana in a car accident last December. Lorenzana’s attorney, Frank Panetta, said both were named because his client developed more severe nerve damage after the car accident, and “we’re not 100% sure which incident caused the injury.”
