Philadelphia partner Christopher James Pakuris received a defense verdict in a 3˝-day sex discrimination and Pennsylvania Wage Payment Collection Law violation case in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. The female plaintiff alleged that she had been fired from one restaurant/club owned by the defendants because she was female. She further alleged that she had been forced to endorse her payroll checks that failed to accurately reflect her true hours worked, and hand those checks over to the defendants for the original restaurant/club and for a second nightclub. The plaintiff had been successful before the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission while the defendants were represented by counsel other than Margolis Edelstein. At trial plaintiff presented seven past employees in addition to her own testimony. Plaintiff's demand prior to trial was $250,000.00.

After a five-day jury trial in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Philadelphia partner Christopher James Pakuris received a verdict in the amount of $980.88. Plaintiff's pretrial demand was $500,000.00 and her lowest demand during trial was $250,000.00. Plaintiff alleged that she suffered a torn tarsal tendon that had been ripped off the ankle bone when a lid fell off a washing machine. Plaintiff presented two medical doctors at trial who testified the injury was permanent and would leave the plaintiff with pain and a limp for the rest of her life. Plaintiff boarded over $55,600.00 in medical specials. The minimal verdict was a compromise with six of the eight jurors wanting to return a defense verdict and two of the jurors wanting to give the plaintiff her emergency room specials only. The emergency room specials were the amount of the award.
