FEBRUARY 11, 2008 - Schwartz Perry & Heller ACHIEVES VICTORIES IN TWO DISCRIMINATION CASES

Schwartz Perry & Heller is pleased to announce that our firm achieved two significant victories in two very different venues in discrimination cases.

I. Summary Judgment Victory in an Age Discrimination Case in Federal Court

The first was our successful defense against Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment in an age discrimination case brought by our client in Federal Court, Southern District of New York. The defense against this type of motion, which is referred to as a dispositive motion, is quite significant because, should the defendant prevail, the case would effectively be over and the client would be unable to establish his case before a jury.

We are delighted at the fact that our client can now look forward to having the validity of his claim determined by a jury. At such time as additional significant information exists, we expect to be in a position to report the details.

II. Successful Conclusion of a Mediation

In the same week, we also successfully resolved a sexual harassment and retaliation claim through Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR), which was accomplished through a mediation. Resolving a dispute in this fashion, in many cases, results in a conclusion that is satisfactory to both parties. Therefore, we consider a settlement achieved through mediation, a positive result.
