Employment Attorneys Prevail Before the United States Supreme Court
In October 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court denied plaintiff’s Petition for a Writ of Certiorari of a successful motion for summary judgment which San Francisco partner Gregory Spallas and associate Anna Gehriger had won in December 2012, on behalf of a large commercial employer. The 2012 summary judgment by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District was first appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. PSA successfully defended the district court’s decision before the Ninth Circuit. In 2015, the matter was then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The highest court ultimately upheld the district court’s disposition of the Plaintiff’s age and disability based discrimination, harassment, retaliation and failure to accommodate claims.
