San Francisco Employment Partners Michael Bruno and Mike Laurenson obtained a defense verdict in an age discrimination jury trial on behalf of a Silicon Valley-based global provider of computer networking solutions. Plaintiff sought $2.8 million plus unspecified punitive damages based on allegations that he was terminated from his sales position due to his age. At the time of his termination, plaintiff was 20 years older than most of his peers. The complex case involved extensive sales and performance figures, and comparisons alleging disparate treatment. The three-week jury trial concluded with the jury entering a verdict in favor of Defendant after only 40 minutes of deliberation.
