Saiber Obtains Summary Judgment in Employment Discrimination Case

In January 2012, the firm successfully moved for summary judgment in an employment discrimination case brought against a New Jersey University, its former President and several former University Trustees, alleging race and gender discrimination. The lawsuit alleged that the University had violated the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination in terminating an African-American woman from a high level administrative position.   Saiber argued in Court that the University had presented a non-discriminatory reason for the termination of the at-will employee. In dismissing the case in its entirety, the Hon. Rachel N. Davidson of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Essex County, found that the employee had not presented any evidence to rebut the non-discriminatory reason. Saiber attorneys William F. Maderer, Joan M. Schwab, Agnes I. Rymer and Christopher Turano participated in the case.
