Firm wins favorable ruling in retaliation case
On April 4, 2019, Judge Christopher R. Cooper ruled in favor of the firm's client, Carolina Young, and denied an attempt by her former employer, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to dismiss her Title VII complaint of retaliation. Ms. Young sought to amend her complaint to clarify her claims against WMATA, which opposed the amendment and claimed that the amended complaint would not survive an attempt to dismiss the case. However, Judge Cooper held that Ms. Young's amended complaint contained sufficient facts to allege retaliation. The Court denied the defendant's motion to dismiss, and permitted the filing of Ms. Young's amended complaint, so Ms. Young's case against WMATA will proceed.
Ms. Young is represented by Richard Salzman and Sharon Rogart.
