Barclay Damon Live: Labor & Employment Podcast—"Best Practices for Defending Discrimination Lawsuits in Federal Court, Part 2," with Randy Oppenheimer

In part two of “Best Practices for Defending Discrimination Lawsuits in Federal Court,” Ari Kwiatkowski welcomes back her Barclay Damon colleague Randy Oppenheimer to continue their discussion about the process involved in a federal court lawsuit brought against an employer. They talked about an early potential step, a settlement conference, in episode 35. If that step wasn’t conclusive or on the table, it’s off to discovery, says Randy, and this strategic period can have a big effect on the case. Listen in as they go through other possible steps, including a motion to dismiss, mediation process, and summary judgment motion. Having the right lawyer is key, and Randy talks about what to look for. Then tune in for Ari’s next episode, when Debbie Kent, New York State Division of Human Rights regional director, answers questions about the division.
