Fort Lauderdale Office Celebrates Directed Verdict in an Employment Case
FORT LAUDERDALE – DECEMBER 08, 2021 – Civil litigation defense firm, Wicker Smith O’Hara McCoy & Ford P.A., congratulates Fort Lauderdale partners Jason A. Glusman and Carlos “Charlie” Garcia on a directed verdict six days into a jury trial in a heavily contested employment discrimination/civil conspiracy/tortious interference case. This case has been ongoing for 11 years and was picked up by Wicker Smith’s Fort Lauderdale office five years ago to try this jury case on behalf of three managers of a Florida supermarket chain.
Following her administrative separation due to reported failures to follow proper policies and procedures at the workplace, Plaintiff filed suit against two department managers and a store manager, claiming they had conspired to have her fired. The judge granted Wicker Smith’s motion for a directed verdict, agreeing with the argument that Defendants were, at all times, acting in the scope of their employment and in their employer’s best interest.
