Motion for Summary Judgment Defeated in Employment Discrimination Case

Sabatini and Associates recently defeated a defendant's motion for summary judgment in a Connecticut employment discrimination case. The case involves a claim of disability discrimination. In wrongful termination and employment discrimination cases, defendants routinely file motions for summary judgment. Motions for summary judgment are used to try to get the judge to dismiss the case before it gets to a jury trial. In order to prevail on a motion for summary judgment, the moving party must prove that there are no genuine issues of material fact and based on the undisputed facts, the moving party is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law. In order to properly object to the motion, the plaintiff must have conducted proper discovery in the case. In other words, develop the necessary evidence to defeat a motion for summary judgment.
