Thorpe Shwer Obtains Early Dismissal in Franchisor-Liability Action

Thorpe Shwer attorneys Brad Shwer, Andrea Marconi, and Spencer Scharff successfully defended one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing franchisors with over 1,000 franchisee-owned locations in an employment-related matter in California state court. The complaint alleged, inter alia, retaliation under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, wage and hour violations under the California Labor Code, and tort claims. Plaintiff dismissed all claims against our client without prejudice, less than two months after our firm’s initial appearance and while Thorpe Shwer’s motion for summary judgment was still pending.
