Royal Attorneys Successfully Argue Partial Motion to Dismiss on Behalf of Fortune 500 Company

Published:  April 4, 2017

Royal attorneys successfully argued a partial motion to dismiss on behalf of a Fortune 500 company and several of its managers in an employment lawsuit brought in state court.  The court adopted defense counsel’s argument that claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress and gross negligence are barred by the exclusivity provisions of the Workers Compensation Act, dismissing each of those claims.  The court also agreed with defense counsel and dismissed the plaintiff's breach of contract claims against the managers, finding that if such a contract existed, it existed between the company and the plaintiff and not the individual employees.  In addition, the court agreed with defense counsel and dismissed the plaintiff's wrongful termination against public policy claim against the managers, finding that there is no individual liability for supervisors.
