Darryl G. McCallum and Courtney B. Amelung Won a Complete Defense Verdict
Darryl G. McCallum and Courtney B. Amelung won a complete defense verdict following a six-day federal court jury trial on a former employee’s claims of race and national origin discrimination against her employer. Darryl and Courtney were able to demonstrate that the employee was legitimately disciplined for documented performance issues. Originally, the lawsuit involved two other plaintiffs. The trial court granted summary judgment on all of the plaintiffs’ claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the ruling for two of the plaintiffs, but sent the third plaintiff’s claims to trial.
