Gender Discrimination Case Against National Mortgage Lender Defeated in Arbitration

Initially our client, a national mortgage lender, faced a coordinated complex gender discrimination matter brought by four former female employees.  The action contained a full gamut of complaints - more than 50 employment and tort claims, including race/national origin discrimination, wrongful termination, invasion of privacy, defamation, California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act violations, and breach of implied contract, among many other claims. The court granted the defendants’ motions for summary adjudication on a majority of the claims, which prompted a low-value settlement with three of the four plaintiffs. The lead plaintiff was persuaded to pursue her remaining claim of gender discrimination in binding arbitration rather than through the lengthier and more costly jury trial and uncertain appeal. CDF successfully arbitrated the matter and obtained a complete defense verdict.
