On October 5, 2018, a Newark, NJ state court jury found in favor of our client who was fired for being a whistle-blower. The jury awarded $299,044.41 in lost wages and the same amount in punitive damages making the total verdict just under $600,000. Partner Jon Green and Counsel Laura LoGuidice tried the case on behalf of our client who prevailed under the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act which protects employees who object to illegal conduct by their employer from retaliation. Because our client prevailed, our firm's attorney's fees and costs, as allowed by the statute, was more than $400,000 thus adding up to more than a $1million for the entire judgment. The parties have since settled the case for an undisclosed amount.
