Posted on September 8, 2009 by Matthew Stanford
In a landmark case, Mr. Organ represented a reservist in the first-ever discrimination lawsuit in California to be brought against an employer for discriminating against an employee due to his military status. In the first case of its kind in the state of California, Army Reserve Captain Steve Lively filed a discrimination lawsuit against his employer after receiving unfair treatment as a result of his obligations as a reservist. The local ABC News station provided coverage on the case.
