Trial court denies summary judgement in sex discrimination lawsuit

May 16, 2013

In Finn v. Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc., et al., the trial court rejects a summary judgment motion filed by individual defendants, and rules that Plaintiff Molly Finn (previously the highest ranking female partner at Booz Allen) had presented sufficient evidence for a jury to hold liable the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer. The court's ruling provides a green light for the case to proceed to trial. The Court also held that the jury would be permitted to consider awarding punitive damages on the individual defendants, because “a reasonable juror could conclude that the Individual Defendants acted with the requisite mental state for the imposition of punitive damages.”
