CHPL’s Client Prevailed on All Nine Causes of Action Alleged Against It in Employment Discrimination Case
Marisa Janine-Page’s client was sued by an ex-employee for gender discrimination, disability discrimination, interference with the California Family Rights Act and the Family Medical Leave Act, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other causes of action. After almost a year-and-a-half of litigation, the parties went to trial in Los Angeles Superior Court. After two weeks of trial, the jury, after only a few hours of deliberation, returned a complete defense verdict on all causes of action in Ms. Janine-Page’s client’s favor. Ms. Janine-Page later brought a successful motion for sanctions under Code of Civil Procedure section 128.5 arising from plaintiff’s counsel’s bad faith, frivolous litigation tactics. The firm is pleased by the favorable result obtained for the client, and congratulates Ms. Janine-Page on her zealous advocacy.
