A plaintiff recently learned that it’s one thing to make baseless allegations but it’s quite another to try and get away with it. In a sexual harassment and discrimination case brought against one of our Fortune 500 clients, partner Thomas K. Hockel scored an early knock out when, after just two hours of deposition, the plaintiff agreed to waive all claims and dismiss the lawsuit with prejudice in order to end the examination. By persistently and systematically dissecting the testimony, Mr. Hockel caught the plaintiff in several lies and dismantled his claims in short order. The plaintiff and his counsel departed the firm’s conference room before the ink on the dismissal had dried.
