University Prevails on Motion to Dismiss Claims by Former Employee
Gentry Locke for the Defense
United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia – Harrisonburg Division
We successfully represented a university in Virginia in a lawsuit by a former department director who raised numerous claims, including discrimination on the basis of race and gender, violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Family Medical Leave Act, and a number of other state and federal laws. The judge termed the complaints a “machine gun spray” of allegations. Following lengthy motions to dismiss and oral argument, the magistrate judge has recommended dismissal of all claims with prejudice.
Report and Recommendation was filed by the Magistrate Judge, dismissing all claims against our client.
