February 7, 2017

Heller, Huron, Chertkof & Salzman attorney Rick Salzman won a $500,000 settlement for the firm’s client against the District of Columbia.  The client, a former public school teacher and Department of Education employee who wished to return to the classroom either as a teacher or as an assistant principal upon retirement from his career as a civil servant, settled the case on the eve of trial.  The client had applied to DCPS open positions for several years, but each was rejected, despite the client having over three decades of experience in the field of education.
