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.

Status of the case:

Report and Recommendation was filed by the Magistrate Judge, dismissing all claims against our client.
