Defense Judgment: Employment Case Victory By Motion for Summary Judgment

On behalf of a national retailer, Call & Jensen obtained a complete dismissal of all of the plaintiff’s claims by a motion for summary judgment. In the First Amended Complaint, the plaintiff alleged causes of action for race and gender discrimination, harassment, and retaliation based on his long tenure of employment. Despite some inflammatory allegations, including plaintiff’s assertions of a supervisor using the “N” word, Call & Jensen obtained a complete dismissal of the plaintiff’s claims. Although plaintiff’s complaint demanded more than one million dollars in damages, the trial court ruled that the plaintiff should take nothing from his complaint. The team consisted of Scott Shaw and John Egley.
