Client Victorious in Employment Discrimination Case

Posted by Matthew J. Devoti on December 27, 2012

A client represented by Casey & Devoti received a favorable verdict in her employment discrimination case this past week. The woman worked as a limited-term utility worker for the City of St. Louis in 2009. She alleged that she was subjected to unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances during that Summer by her direct supervisor. She made a formal claim with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights at the term’s end. The City then passed over her for re-hire for the 2010 term despite positive reviews and her prior experience.

Matt Devoti tried the case before Judge Robin Vannoy in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis. At the end of a seven day trial, a jury of St. Louis residents found against the City on the client’s retaliation claim and found the City to be liable for punitive damage. The verdict nearly tripled the amount offered by the City to settle the woman’s claim prior to the start of the jury trial.
