C.H. Robinson, represented by the firm, defeated class certification on a sexual harassment claim in a gender discrimination case. The court certified a class on pay and promotion claims, but only as to liability, injunctive and declaratory relief and not for damages. The court severed monetary damages and reserved a decision on the certification of damages if liability is found on the pay and promotion claims at trial.
C.H. Robinson also won summary judgment on 10 of the 12 named plaintiffs' individual sexual harassment claims.
In a FLSA overtime case, claiming that the company misclassified employees as non-exempt, C.H. Robinson won summary judgment on the exempt status of one of the named plaintiffs for the collective action. C.H. Robinson also defeated plaintiffs' class-wide motion for summary judgment on their overtime claims.
