CHPL Attorney’s Mock Trial Team Ranks in National Competition – 4/7/19
After being awarded All Region Attorney as a collegiate mock trial advocate in 2011, CHPL’s own Caitlin Macker returned to the national collegiate mock trial tournament scene this weekend, as a coach. In just three years of volunteer coaching USCD’s collegiate mock trial team, Caitlin guided three UCSD teams to qualify for the American Mock Trial Association’s Championship Series. With CHPL’s feedback and Caitlin’s boundless mentorship, one of those teams went on to place 10th at the National Championship Tournament, competing against the top 48 teams in the nation. Caitlin and her students dedicated hundreds of hours over the course of the school year to achieve these successes. Congratulations to the UCSD students and their coach Caitlin Macker!
Caitlin Macker is a litigator with Caldarelli Hejmanowski Page & Leer whose practice is primarily business litigation.
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.
