ADH Wins $280,000 Judgment Against Architect of the Capitol in Disability Discrimination Case

ADH Member, Les Alderman, filed suit against the Architect of the Capitol on behalf of Justin McGuire for, among other things, disability discrimination and retaliation resulting in Mr. McGuire’s termination from his job as a high voltage electrician with the Architect of the Capitol.  After the completion of discovery, the Architect made an Offer of Judgment in the total amount of $280,000.  Such judgements, in which the defendant voluntarily accepts a judgment against it, are highly unusual in civil litigation.
