Calhoun v. Herkimer County, 114 AD3d 1304, 2014 NY App Div LEXIS 1072 (4th Dept Feb. 2014)
The New York Appellate Division for the Fourth Department affirmed summary judgment dismissal of multiple claims brought by a former County staff member. In October 2016, following a week-long jury trial defended by Gregg Johnson, the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict dismissing all of Plaintiff’s remaining (retaliation) claims. Following the verdict, the Herkimer Supreme Court granted Mr. Johnson’s motion for prevailing party attorneys’ fees in 2017, awarding one of the firm’s clients $15,000. Plaintiff’s post-verdict motions were appealed to the Fourth Department.
