In December 2007, Partner Linda Miller Savitt and Senior Counsel John J. Manier won a victory in the Ninth U.S. Court of Appeals in EEOC v. Robert L. Reeves & Associates. The Court affirmed a unanimous jury verdict in favor of our client, Robert L. Reeves & Associates, an immigration law firm in Pasadena. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had sued the law firm, claiming that five of its employees were sexually harassed and one was discharged because she was pregnant. The jury rejected all six claims after deliberating for only four and one-half hours (an average of 40 minutes per claimant). The Court found that even if some evidentiary errors had been made, they were harmless because the evidence overwhelmingly supported the defense verdict.
