Trial Win in Employment Discrimination Case

Posted on Firm News by author

After only 30 minutes of deliberation, a federal jury in Fort Pierce returned a defense verdict in favor of our medical practice client in a federal age and disability discrimination case.  Nicholson & Eastin, LLP’s Managing Attorney, Robert Nicholson, represented the medical practice during the trial.  Mr. Nicholson employed his years of federal litigation and trial experience in securing this trial victory for our client.

The employee, an x-ray technician that had been employed by the practice for approximately 5 years, sued the practice for age and disability discrimination after she was terminated for misconduct.  After a two and half day trial, the jury rejected all the former employee’s claims and returned a verdict finding that the employee was not disabled and that the medical practice did not discharge her based upon age.  Based upon the jury’s verdict, the court entered a formal judgment in favor of the medical practice.
