JUNE 9, 2006 - JURY AWARDS $2.5 MILLION IN RETALIATION CLAIM TO CLIENT OF Schwartz Perry & Heller

On Friday, June 9, 2006, following a two-week trial in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, the jury returned a verdict in favor of our client, after less than an hour’s deliberation. The verdict was in the amount of $2.5 million, of which $300,000 represented an award of punitive damages. The jury found our client was terminated by his employer in retaliation for protesting age discrimination.
   
Since the action was initially brought under the New York City Law and was removed to federal court, the amount was not subject to the federal cap. After adding damages which were awarded, as well as interest, costs and attorney fees, the amount of the final judgment that was entered totaled almost $4,000,000.

The case was tried by Murray Schwartz, together with Davida S. Perry and Brian Heller.
