Payne & Fears Case Included in Top Defense Verdict Section of Daily Journal

In the March 27th edition of the Daily Journal, Payne & Fears LLP’s Kravitsky v. Corinthian Colleges Inc. case was included in the Top Defense Cases section. Attorneys Jeffrey Brown and Ray Boggess defended Corinthian Colleges and the jury ultimately rendered a verdict for the defense on all claims. 

Summary of Case: 

Payne & Fears won a two-week jury trial and obtained a complete defense verdict for its client in Kravitsky v. Corinthian Colleges, Inc., a wrongful termination case before the Los Angeles Superior Court. The plaintiff brought claims against his former employer for disability discrimination, religious harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation and defamation. Payne & Fears represented the defendant employer, and put on a case demonstrating not only that the employer had complied with all of its legal obligations regarding reasonable accommodation and prevention of discrimination, but also that the plaintiff had been terminated based on well-reasoned conclusions that he had engaged in workplace misconduct. The jury decided in the defendant employer’s favor on every claim. Jeff Brown and Ray Boggess represented the successful employer.
