CALL & JENSEN: C&J PROTECTS MSJ VICTORY ON APPEAL
Call & Jensen attorneys Julie Trotter, Jackie Beaumont and Melinda Evans successfully defended their summary judgment win on appeal in a wrongful termination lawsuit brought against Chevron and two individual supervisors. The lawsuit alleged complex and novel issues regarding the scope of protection afforded non-citizen employees under California’s FEHA. Plaintiff was a high-earning expat seeking over $1.5 million in damages. The Call & Jensen team prevailed on summary judgment at the trial level after securing damaging deposition admissions during a grueling, two-day deposition of plaintiff. Following oral argument, the Court of Appeal affirmed the judgment in its entirety.
