THREE-WEEK JURY TRIAL VICTORY: PRESTIGIOUS PRIVATE UNIVERSITY PREVAILS IN MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT LAWSUIT
Call & Jensen recently obtained a complete 12-0 defense trial verdict for its clients, a prestigious Southern California private university and one of its employees, following a three-week jury trial in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County. The lawsuit involved detailed claims of sexual harassment and discrimination, pregnancy harassment and discrimination, constructive discharge in violation of public policy, failure to prevent harassment and physical disability discrimination and unpaid overtime and missed meal and rest breaks. Although the plaintiff asked the jury to award more than $3 million in damages, the firm’s attorneys proved at trial that her claims were simply not credible. Attorneys David R. Sugden, Marlynn P. Howe, and Melinda Evans obtained the vindicating victory for their clients.
