Ballard Rosenberg Golper & Savitt Obtains Summary Adjudication Ruling Disposing of Major Portions of Lawsuit Alleging Age and Disability Discrimination

On May 22, 2017, Linda Hurevitz and Zareh Jaltorossian won summary adjudication on behalf of a hospital in a case alleging claims for age and disability discrimination, harassment, breach of contract, retaliation, and misclassification/failure to pay overtime. The court granted summary adjudication as to the plaintiff’s age-based claims, retaliation, breach of contract, failure to pay overtime, and punitive damages, eliminating from the case the majority of the plaintiff’s claims as well as three of the four categories of damages the plaintiff was seeking in the case. The ruling significantly reduces the client’s exposure in the case and leaves the client well-positioned to leverage a favorable resolution prior to trial.
