Defense Verdict in Employment Discrimination Case

April 15, 2017

We obtained a defense verdict on behalf of a school district in a lawsuit brought by an employee who claimed he was discriminated and retaliated against based on his age, gender and race.  Plaintiff, a Caucasian male over the age of 40, claimed he was highly qualified and experienced unlike the African-American female under the age 40 who was selected for a managerial position instead of him.  In its defense, we presented evidence of how plaintiff lacked the necessary qualities of an effective manager.  After an hour of deliberation, the jury returned a defense verdict.
