GOLDSMITH FIRM WINS REVERSAL AT MARYLAND COURT OF SPECIAL APPEALS IN PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY DISCRIMINATION CASE; CASE SUBSEQUENTLY SETTLES
Leizer Z. Goldsmith and The Goldsmith Law Firm succeeded in reversing a Prince George's County Circuit Court judge's decision transferring a discrimination case to Montgomery County, Maryland. In the case, Pope-Payton v. Realty Management, the company argued that even though Ms. Pope-Payton worked for the company at its property in Prince George's County, Maryland, and even though she sued under that county's law, the case could only be heard in neighboring Montgomery County, because its corporate offices were located there. The Court agreed with Ms. Pope-Payton, however, that she should be permitted to bring the case in Prince George's County. The case was later settled for a confidential sum.
