In an unpublished opinion, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit overturned the trial court’s decision to take away a favorable jury verdict for three clients of The Employment Law Group.
Summary of Filed Complaint
Three female Virginia Tech employees alleged that Virginia Tech discriminated against them by paying them less than similarly situated male employees. One of the employees also alleged that Virginia Tech retaliated against her when she complained.
What Happened in Court
After a multi-day trial, a jury awarded three TELG clients between $15,000 and $61,000 each. The Trial Court took away the jury’s award and TELG appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which overruled the Trial Court and issued an opinion favoring TELG’s clients.
