MRW Obtains Critical Ruling in Federal Race Discrimination Case
The U.S. District Court in Boston recently handed down a ruling favoring a MRW client suing his employer for race discrimination. The plaintiff’s case alleges he was denied a series of promotions because of his race and that his employer retaliated against him after he complained about racism in the workplace. In June 2013, lawyers for the employer filed a motion requesting that the Court dismiss the case. MRW’s lawyers responded with an opposition to the motion. Relying heavily on MRW’s opposition, the Court issued a January 2014 ruling that preserved most of the plaintiff’s claims and allowed the case to continue toward a trial.
