ADH Wins Trial Victory Against the Department of Transportation

ADH's client received a favorable verdict against the Department of Transportation. After a three day hearing, the Administrative Judge found that the Agency had discriminated, retaliated and subjected the firm's client to a hostile work environment based on her age and race (Asian) by reassigning her to another department within her sub-agency. Significantly, the AJ drew an adverse inference against the Agency for its failure to preserve the hard drives of three supervisors who were involved in the decision to reassign her. The AJ awarded the complainant compensatory damages and the award of attorney's fees and sanctions against the Agency is pending. Sundeep Hora served as lead counsel.
