LITIGATION

Employee v. California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) (2017) - Obtained a complete summary judgment of all claims by a former employee of the California Public Utilities Commission who alleged that he was terminated from his employment because of his race and for alleged whistleblowing. Successfully showed that the employee had been repeatedly counseled about his conduct at work and the poor quality of his work product, refused to follow instructions, and made false and threatening statements to co-workers. The Court held that no reasonable jury could conclude that the employee had been terminated for anything other than his poor performance and misconduct, as consistently documented by the Commission.
