MGS attorney Raymond H. Groble III recently obtained a summary judgment in a racial discrimination case against a railroad client.
A train engineer alleged racial discrimination under Section 1983 for being terminated after he drove a train carrying hazardous chemicals through the locked gate of a homeland security protected storage facility. The engineer was found to have violated multiple railroad rules and regulations, including reckless conduct, constituting a stand-alone dismissable offense.
Mr. Groble argued that their rail client had a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for terminating him, and that none of the comparator employees the engineer offered were comparable because none of those employees committed stand-alone dismissal offenses like the plaintiff did.
The Court agreed and granted MGS’ client summary judgment, terminating the engineer’s case.
