ELLIOTT GREENLEAF WINS PLAINTIFF’S VERDICT IN WRONGFUL TERMINATION CASE

Elliott Greenleaf won a Plaintiff’s verdict in a wrongful termination case under a written contract following trial in the Court of Common Pleas of Luzerne County before the Honorable Joseph F. Sklarosky, Jr. The plaintiff was terminated from her management position with the defendant Medical Billing Company. Elliott Greenleaf argued the termination violated the plaintiff’s employment contract. The defendant filed a counter-claim asserting that the plaintiff abandoned her job, thus triggering liquidated damages in the contract. After trial, the Court entered a verdict in favor of the plaintiff for all the damages she sought and rejected the counterclaim.

John G. Dean and Shanna W. Williamson tried the case in the Court of Common Pleas of Luzerne County.
