A Moving Force
Shareholder Jeff James and Associate Matt Kelly recently proved that it pays to keep moving. Matt and Jeff put together an impressive string of four motion victories in a federal court case alleging interference with FMLA rights and failure to accommodate the plaintiff’s disability under the Washington Law Against Discrimination. These rulings helped eliminate certain claims and arguments, while delivering a “body blow” to the plaintiff’s overall legal theory. Then, with a final motion to dismiss the remaining portions of the case pending, the parties were able to resolve the matter successfully.
