LJSP Attorneys Bill Davidson and Grant Goerke Secure Appellate Victory Before the MN Court of Appeals Apel v. MRCI

February 7, 2019

On Monday February 4th 2019, Lind Jensen attorneys Bill Davidson and Grant Goerke secured an appellate victory on behalf of their client, a non-profit employer, in an employment discrimination case before the Minnesota Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal of a former employee’s claim that the employer terminated her employment because of her age and in violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act. Davidson and Goerke defended the employer in the district court and obtained summary judgment in their favor based on the employer’s legitimate reasons for the termination and the employee’s lack of evidence of discrimination. Davidson and Goerke also represented the employer before the Court of Appeals and successfully argued to uphold the summary judgment decision and dismissal. The Court of Appeals agreed that the termination was legitimate and that the employee’s complaints about the decision did not establish discrimination.
