Royal Attorneys Successfully Argue Partial Motion to Dismiss

Published:  April 4, 2017

Royal attorneys successfully argued a partial motion to dismiss in federal court on behalf of a multi-state human service organization and its management.  The lawsuit involved allegations of civil rights violations, employment discrimination, and breach of contract.   The Court agreed with defense counsel that the Title VII claims should be dismissed because they were not predicated upon any protected class.  The court also agreed with defense counsel that there is no individual liability for supervisors under Title VII or the Americans with Disabilities Act, dismissing both of those claims against management.  In addition, the court agreed with defense counsel that there is no individual liability for management with respect to a breach of contract claim, finding that the individuals who signed the contract had merely done so on behalf of the organization.  The court further adopted defense counsel’s argument that the Development Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 does not provide for a private right of action and dismissed that claim against all defendants.
