SEPTA Wins Dismissal on All Counts in Employment Discrimination Case

Stradley Ronon’s trial team secured a full defense jury verdict in an employment discrimination case brought against the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA).

Plaintiff filed an administrative complaint in 2012 with the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission against SEPTA, alleging that she was denied a promotion because of race discrimination, gender discrimination and retaliation for filing a lawsuit against SEPTA. The plaintiff later amended her complaint to include allegations of quid pro quo sexual harassment. Once her claims were filed, the plaintiff began applying for a series of other promotions.  By the time the plaintiff filed her civil lawsuit against SEPTA in 2014, she claimed she had been denied a total of seven promotions because of quid pro quo sexual harassment, gender discrimination and retaliation.

Stradley Ronon represented SEPTA at trial and, after four days of testimony, the jury returned a verdict in SEPTA's favor on all counts.
