Won Appeal in Sexual Harassment Suit
The California Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Three today affirmed the grant of summary judgment in favor of P&F’s client, a leading developer and manufacturer of biomedical products. A former employee had brought suit against the company in Superior Court, alleging sexual harassment, retaliation and related claims. After discovery, P&F moved for summary judgment, and in September 2009, the trial court granted judgment for the client. The employee appealed, and after briefing and oral argument, the Court of Appeal affirmed the victory for P&F’s client. Daniel F. Fears, Eric C. Sohlgren and Daniel F. Lula handled the appeal, with Mr. Fears arguing the case before the Court of Appeal.
