Payne & Fears LLP Wins Appeal in Unruh Civil Rights Act Suit (Cohn v. Corinthian Colleges, 169 Cal.App.4th 523 (2008))
Payne & Fears was retained by Corinthian Colleges to defend claims that the company’s sponsorship of a promotional giveaway of tote bags on Mother’s Day at Angel Stadium of Anaheim violated California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act. Plaintiff’s claims were dismissed pursuant to a motion for summary judgment, which was later affirmed on appeal. Daniel L. Rasmussen and Julie J. Bisceglia handled the defense of the case and the appeal.
