Employee Discharged for Misconduct Claiming Defamation Defeated At Trial

Our client, a large financial services company, was sued by an 11-year employee who asserted various employment related and defamation claims after his employment relationship was terminated for misconduct. CDF moved for summary judgment on all claims, which the court granted except for the defamation claim.  When the employee and his attorney refused to settle the case for anything less than seven figures, CDF took the case to trial and returned with a defense verdict.
