Amy Cooper filed a federal lawsuit against her former employer, saying the company never investigated the incident that led to her firing — the confrontation between her and Christian Cooper.
Amy Cooper had been facing a charge of falsely reporting an incident to police, after she told them Christian Cooper, who is not related to her, threatened her in a New York City park. He did not.
The woman was captured on cellphone video calling police on a Black bird-watcher in Central Park this summer. She allegedly went a step further in the second call, saying he "tried to assault her."
The Manhattan District Attorney's Office says it is initiating a prosecution of Amy Cooper over false reporting of an incident. In a cellphone video, she claimed a Black man was threatening her.
