Can you make above-the-line deduction for attorneys fees/court costs paid in 2018 relating to lawsuit for unpaid wages and/or bonuses? Lawsuit still ongoing as of 2019.

I know you can make above the line deductions for employment discrimination cases, but I thought at one point ATL deductions could be made for my situation as well.

Unfortunately, the new tax law has suspended legal costs for employment related expenses on your federal return.
