On January 25, 2008, the court of appeal in Aronsohn v. City of Los Angeles (B190477), affirmed summary judgment for the City of Los Angeles against a City Attorney who claimed she was retaliated against for asserting wrongdoing by another City employee. Plaintiff claimed that the denial of a promotion and merit increase, her reassignment to a different department, and her treatment in the new department were all in retaliation for her complaint about the other City employee. The appellate court found the City had legitimate, non-retaliatory reasons for its personnel decisions regarding plaintiff and she failed to raise triable issues of fact demonstrating pretext.
