Aggressive Defense Yields Nuisance Value Settlement in Gender Discrimination Case

Our client, a Fortune 1000 company, faced a gender discrimination claim from a former employee who was part of a reduction in force.  At an early mediation, the plaintiff sprung allegations of a surprise witness who purportedly had direct evidence of discrimination.  However, after CDF deposed this witness, we successfully negotiated a nuisance value settlement following our aggressive defense of the company’s decisions and highlighting the flaws in the plaintiff’s claims and evidence, all of which resulted in substantial savings for our client.
