Richard Johnson successfully secured the voluntary dismissal of a lawsuit brought in the District Court of the Northern Mariana Islands. The client involved is a multinational enterprise with operations in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The lawsuit asserted claims of discriminatory conduct in evaluating job applicants, claims which were vigorously denied by the client.
Mr. Johnson also recently secured dismissal of an EEOC complaint against a local Guam employer filed with the Guam Department of Labor. That complaint alleged harassment in the workplace in violation of Title VII of the Civil rights Act of 1964. The Department of Labor closed the case shortly after receiving a response prepared by Mr. Johnson.
