Zuber Lawler & Del Duca's Employment Law Group prevailed on a motion for summary judgment earlier this week in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of the firm's client Sempra Energy and its subsidiary Southern California Gas Company. The action was brought by a former employee against Sempra Energy under California's Fair Employment and Housing Act ("FEHA") for alleged disability discrimination, including claims for retaliation, failure to accommodate, and failure to engage in the interactive process.
Zuber Lawler & Del Duca partner Jeremy Gray and associate Lisa Lawrence led the firm's representation of Sempra Energy and Southern California Gas. Their motion for summary judgment was granted in full.
This victory arrives on the heels of a successful motion to dismiss a complaint filed in 2013 against Sempra Energy alleging wrongful termination in violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act and a collective bargaining agreement.
"We're thrilled for our clients," stated Managing Partner Tom Zuber, "and we're honored to represent the Sempra family of companies."
