National Railroad Leaves Wrongful Termination Claims at the Station

A national railroad retained CDF to represent it in a lawsuit filed by a former employee alleging multiple claims based on wrongful termination and failure to promote.  The plaintiff alleged the company based multiple employment decisions involving the plaintiff on the plaintiff's disability, age, and national origin as well as in retaliation for his taking a medical leave.  CDF filed a summary judgment motion attacking all causes of action which the federal court granted in its entirety and resulted in a complete dismissal of the complaint.
