New Legal Challenges Target Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg

 June 9, 2024

A recent legal complaint by America First Legal has accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of discriminatory practices in his office's hiring policies.

Stephen Miller’s advocacy group is alleging discrimination against white and Asian men in hiring within Bragg's office, as Newsweek reports.

America First Legal (AFL), founded by Miller, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, has filed a series of complaints against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The complaints focus on the DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) policies employed by Bragg’s office, which AFL claims are discriminatory.

The complaints were filed with both the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the New York Department of Labor. AFL argues that these policies unfairly exclude white men and Asian individuals from being fairly considered for positions within the DA's office. Information from the official website of the Manhattan DA’s office served as the basis for these allegations, suggesting an emphasis on hiring practices that could potentially screen out candidates based on race and gender.

Background of America First Legal

Miller established America First Legal in 2021. The organization's primary goal is to further Trump's policies and to tackle what it considers to be legal challenges against conservative interests. AFL has been active in filing similar complaints against other major corporations and institutions alleging misuse of DEI policies.

AFL's actions extend to several well-known companies such as Tyson Foods, Macy's, and Anheuser-Busch, all targeted for their DEI practices. These cases underscore AFL's broad legal strategy aimed at reforming hiring practices across various sectors.

The organization has positioned itself as a defender of civil rights, focusing on what it perceives as violations of nondiscrimination laws through the enforcement of quotas and biased hiring practices.

Legal Basis for the Complaint

The legal challenge leverages significant legislation. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New A total of 16 counts against the individual involved in York State Human Rights Law form the cornerstone of the complaints lodged by AFL.

AFL alleges that the practices within Bragg's office contravene these foundational laws by instituting recruitment, hiring, and promotion practices that are racially and sexually discriminatory. Reed D. Rubinstein, senior vice president of AFL, strongly criticized the DEI policies of Bragg's office, describing them as a vehicle for advancing a political agenda under the guise of equity and inclusion.

Recent Actions by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg

Bragg, the target of these complaints, has recently been in the news for other high-profile cases, including the prosecution of former President Donald Trump. Bragg’s office achieved a historic verdict, marking Trump as the first U.S. president convicted of a crime.

This legal action by AFL not only questions the fairness of Bragg's DEI policies but also highlights the political tension surrounding his recent prosecutorial decisions. Newsweek attempted to contact Bragg's office for a response to these allegations on Thursday evening, though comments were not available at the time of this report.

Statements from America First Legal

Rubinstein’s remarks were emphatic about the nature of Bragg's DEI policies. "Alvin Bragg has demonstrated beyond all doubt that he will disregard the law and abuse his authority to advance a political agenda," he stated. This comment reflects AFL’s view of the situation as not only a legal misstep but also a moral and ethical issue.

The press release from AFL further details their stance, stating, "Bragg's self-described recruitment, hiring, and promotion practices and quotas violate our nondiscrimination laws. Therefore, the EEOC and the New York Human Rights Division have ample reason to act."

AFL has committed to continuing its fight to uphold civil rights and maintain the rule of law, indicating that this complaint is part of a larger strategy to challenge similar practices nationwide.

Looking Ahead

The complaints by AFL against Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg will likely prompt investigations by both the EEOC and the New York Department of Labor. These bodies are tasked with enforcing the nondiscrimination laws cited in the complaints.

The outcome of these investigations could have significant implications not only for Brailly's office but also for the broader application of DEI policies in public institutions across the United States.

As the legal process unfolds, it will be crucial to monitor the responses from both the implicated parties and the overseeing legal bodies to understand the full impact of these allegations.


In conclusion, America First Legal, led by Stephen Miller, has initiated a legal battle against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, alleging racial and sex discrimination in his office's DEI policies.

This challenge draws on significant civil rights legislation and has sparked a broader debate on the implementation of DEI policies in governmental bodies.

With the complaints now filed, the legal outcomes and their broader implications remain to be seen.
