Morgan, Akins & Jackson Obtains Dismissal in Aviation Discrimination Case
| February 16, 2024

Nate Bohlander, a Partner in the Philadelphia office, and Trey Shoemaker, an Associate in the Lexington office, recently obtained a dismissal on behalf of an airline client in an aviation discrimination case initially filed in the Jefferson Circuit Court in Kentucky.  Plaintiff set forth three causes of action: harassment, religious discrimination, and racial discrimination.  Attorneys Bohlander and Shoemaker removed the matter to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky based upon diversity jurisdiction, and then filed a Motion to Dismiss, arguing, in pertinent part, that Plaintiff had not met the burden of establishing all elements required for each respective cause of action.  The Court agreed with this position, granted the Motion, and, after Plaintiff failed to amend the pleading within a proscribed time period, dismissed the matter.
