A Queens assemblywoman is suing New York State for ruining her sex life with her husband after he was fired from his job as a court officer.
Assemblywoman Michele Titus and her husband, Eric DeBerry, filed a lawsuit in August accusing the New York State Unified Court System of discrimination against black employees and wrongful termination of DeBerry, the New York Daily News reported.
DeBerry, a court officer for 16 years, was fired from his job in August 2014 after allegedly telling a civilian to “Shut the f–k up and mind your business.”
DeBerry claimed that he never cursed at the civilian and that white officers have not gotten fired for worse offenses such as stalking, drunk driving, buying cocaine from an undercover cop and waiving guns at civilians while under the influence of alcohol, the New York Daily News reported.
According to papers filed in the Queens Supreme Court, Titus said she and her husband became estranged due to his alleged wrongful termination.
“Mr. DeBerry was always agitated, he was short-tempered and always defensive,” Titus said. “I had to separate myself from Mr. DeBerry, and we stopped engaging in coitus.”
Titus is a member of the New York State Assembly representing Assembly District 31, which includes Far Rockaway, Springfield Gardens, Rosedale, South Ozone Park, South Richmond Hill and Laurelton.
