Informal Background Investigation of Plaintiff Proves Worthwhile

Our client, a prominent land developer, was sued for pregnancy discrimination by a former employee.  At the inception of the case, the CDF defense team obtained background information on the plaintiff, revealing that the plaintiff had a significant criminal background, all of which she had lied about on her employment application.  The information was shared with the plaintiff's attorney and resulted in nuisance value resolution of the lawsuit without the need for protracted and expensive litigation.
