Lafayette & Kumagai Wins 9th Circuit Appeal for Fortune 500 Company!

Posted By Renecca Allen, Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Kudos to Gary Lafayette and Rebecca Kimura of Lafayette & Kumagai LLP on their appellate victory. The decision from the Ninth Circuit upheld a United States District Court for the Northern District of California decision to grant summary judgment on behalf of a Fortune 500 gas and electric company in an employment matter in which Plaintiff alleged race discrimination, harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination. Defendant contended that Plaintiff was unable to meet the prima facie elements of his case, that he was terminated for legitimate business reasons and that plaintiff’s race had nothing to do with that decision. The Court affirmed judgment in favor of Respondent, Lafayette & Kumagai’s client, holding that the prima facie elements had not been met. Congratulations again to Rebecca and Gary!
