Client: The Defendant Employer, Mall Chevrolet, Inc.
Trial Attorney: Laura D. Ruccolo, Esq.
The Plaintiff, who was an immigrant from Moldavia, claimed that he was the victim of discrimination based on his national origin. Plaintiff alleged that he followed his employer’s anti-discrimination policy and that the employer failed to act on his complaints of discrimination and then fired him in retaliation for making the complaints. The employer defended the case on the basis that there was no discrimination and that the Plaintiff never made any complaint and that Plaintiff was instead terminated for poor performance. The jury returned a verdict in favor of our client, the Defendant employer finding, that there was no discrimination and no retaliation.
