Reverse Gender Discrimination
Represented a large national property and casualty insurer in a contentious male-on-male reverse gender discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuit. Despite potentially problematic factual allegations, we collaboratively assessed with the client that the matter was defensible and could be won on a dispositive motion. After targeted discovery, we successfully moved for summary judgment on all claims and obtained a complete defense judgment and an award of attorneys fees. The fee award likely was not collectible, and we convinced the plaintiff to dismiss his appeal of the summary judgment in exchange for waiving the fee award.
