Won Jury Trial for Employer in Wrongful Termination 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.
