Firm Secures Summary Judgment in Federal Court
On March 28, the US District Court for the District of Maryland granted a summary judgment motion filed by Silverman Thompson lawyers in the matter of McGill, et al. v. Koros, LLC, et al., ending the case against the firm's clients.
The case involved race and religious discrimination claims brought under federal law by a group of plaintiffs against a dining establishment in Anne Arundel County. Bill Sinclair, Kate Sinclair, and Emma Mulford handled the case for the firm, and they successfully saw many of the claims dismissed on a motion to dismiss. After dozens of depositions during discovery, the firm filed summary judgment on the remaining claims. Chief Magistrate Judge Beth Gesner (the parties consented to proceed before a magistrate) adopted the arguments the Firm presented - namely, that the plaintiffs had lodged most of their claims against the wrong corporate defendant, and that any remaining claims failed to present sufficient factual evidence of race or religious discrimination to withstand summary judgment.
