ATLANTA, Ga. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump a member of the legal team for the Fearless Fund, a Black woman-owned and Atlanta-based venture capital firm, has released a statement following a judge’s denial of a motion for preliminary injunction in its legal fight with the American Alliance for Equal Rights (AAER). This decision will allow Fearless Fund to continue their operations while the legal case proceeds.
The AAER alleges that Fearless Fund is discriminating against their members for only providing funding to Black female-owned businesses.
The legal team for the Fearless Fund has released the following statement:
“We have maintained all along that this lawsuit has no merit – today, the Court moved to affirm that. Now, Fearless Fund can continue to empower female entrepreneurs of color and change countless lives for the better. We will continue to stand by these inspiring women even as organizations who are acting on hate attempt to tear them down.”
