Culminating a four year legal battle, we are pleased to announce that the Firm secured an appellate victory that reversed a lower court ruling and dismissed all claims against a long-time client. Jeffrey I. Carton and Amber T. Wallace represented an employer whose seasonal employee was accused by a guest of engaging in race-based misconduct. Originally filed in federal court alleging racial discrimination in a public accommodation, we secured a swift dismissal of all of the putative federal claims. The action was then refiled in State Court, restyled as an alleged negligent hiring action, which the lower court erroneously failed to dismiss. On appeal, the Second Department reversed the lower court’s denial, and granted dismissal of all claims against our client, and awarded our client its appellate costs.
