Footnote 198

In referring to "parties" and "defendants," I intend, where applicable, to encompass involved or affected individuals who work for the company--even though the firm is the sole actual defendant. By contrast to the federal statutes, some state and local anti-discrimination laws provide for liability of agents under certain circumstances. See Tomka v. Seiler Corp., 66 F.3d 1295, 1314-17 (2d Cir. 1995).
