Tallahassee Attorneys Successfully Obtain Final Summary Judgment in Employment Discrimination and Breach of Contract Lawsuit
Joshua C. Canton, managing partner of the firm's Tallahassee, Florida office, along with Justin B. Hales, an associate in the firm’s Tallahassee, Florida office, recently prevailed on a Motion for Final Summary Judgment in a fourteen count employment discrimination and breach of employment contract suit, wherein Plaintiff alleged she was terminated due to her gender and pregnancy status and was subject to a hostile work environment. The Defense argued that Plaintiff had executed a valid release in Defendant’s favor which related to the nine contractual counts. The Defense further argued that Plaintiff was terminated for legitimate non-discriminatory non-pretextual reasons. After a ten hour evidentiary hearing the Court granted final summary judgment in the Defendant’s favor.
