Court of Appeals Victory
Summit Partner Shannon Phillips obtained a ruling before the Washington State Court of Appeals (Division I) in favor of clients ABM Industries Incorporated and ABM Parking Services (now ABM Onsite Services – West, Inc.). Summit had earlier obtained summary judgment in favor of the companies and an individual executive, dismissing with prejudice the former employee’s claims of discrimination, retaliation, breach of handbook promises, and negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Summit also obtained an award of monetary sanctions against the plaintiff and her counsel for asserting claims against individual managers that were not factually or legally well grounded. The Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court’s rulings in their entirety. To view the Court’s ruling, please click here.
