Dismissal of Retaliation and Discrimination Claims

11/07/2008

An employer facing accusations of retaliation and discrimination turned to Larkin Hoffman. Larkin Hoffman’s employment litigation team, led by Chris Harristhal and Julia Halbach, successfully defended this large institutional client against accusations under Title VII and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The Larkin Hoffman team obtained summary judgment on behalf of the client, who was accused by a former employee of retaliating against her for reporting racial discrimination. The federal court dismissed all of the plaintiff’s claims with prejudice.
