The MCB Employment & Labor practice group represented the Defendant employer in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York.

Plaintiff accused his employer of violating his rights to procedural and substantive due process under the Fourteenth Amendment. Plaintiff also raised a First Amendment retaliation claim. The Court granted summary judgment dismissing all of the plaintiff’s federal claims with prejudice. The Court declined to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over plaintiff’s state law claims and dismissed those claims without prejudice.
