CDF represented a Fortune 1000 client and achieved dismissal of a plaintiff's numerous discrimination causes of action. Remaining claims to be tried included breach of implied contract and implied covenant claims. After reading the persuasive trial brief, the trial court declined to impanel a jury on the first day of trial and instead issued an evidentiary ruling prohibiting the plaintiff from introducing any evidence of an implied contract. The court of appeal upheld the ruling and awarded CDF's client its costs on appeal.
