Confidential Settlement in Gender/Race Discrimination Case

Confidential Settlement in Gender/Race Discrimination Case

D'Orazio Peterson was able to successfully negotiate a confidential settlement on behalf of multiple women who had been wrongfully terminated from their employment.  The claims arose out of the terminations of multiple women, each of whom had recently been pregnant, and each of whom had been terminated by a supervisor of a different race.  

The settlement was reached after extensive litigation, including fighting off efforts by one of the defendants to have the case dismissed very early on.  Ultimately that effort was defeated, which led to extensive efforts to obtain documents and witness statements supporting the claims that our clients had been terminated for illegal reasons.  This included obtaining a jail house deposition from a former employee of the defendant who was incarcerated.

At the end of discovery the parties sat down and were able to come to a satisfactory resolution of the claims.  

If you have questions about a potential gender, race or discrimination lawsuit please feel free to give us a call.  We're happy to speak with you.
