Patricia Fecile-Moreland of Marks, O’Neill’s Philadelphia office was successful in obtaining summary judgment on behalf of their client in a wrongful termination case brought pursuant to the Pennsylvania Whistleblower Law (PWL). The case centered around the plaintiff’s contention that her former employer fired her on the basis of her meeting with government investigators regarding her employer’s internal operations, and on the basis of certain complaints of unlawful activity she allegedly lodged during her employment. The Motion for Summary Judgment argued that plaintiff failed to establish that she had actually lodged any protected complaints under the PWL, and that she had further failed to show that her termination was actually caused by any protected activity under the PWL in which she allegedly engaged. Ultimately, the Court agreed that plaintiff had failed to establish the requisite causation between her alleged protected activity and her termination, and summary judgment was awarded in favor of our client as a result.
