Verrill Dana Attorneys Mentioned in Law360 Article on Retaliation Suit

February 26, 2018 Media Mentions

Attorneys Joanna Bowers, Taylor Neff and Paul Shaw were recently mentioned in an article featured on the Law360 website entitled "Judge Keeps Retaliation Suit Against Medical Co. Alive." The article discusses a retaliation suit brought by a Coloplast Corp. employee against the medical device company. The employee states that the company retaliated against her after the company learned about her whistleblower actions and participation in a False Claims Act suit.

Senior U.S. District Judge Zobel denied the medical device company's motion for summary judgement, ruling that the company's action could be seen as retaliation against the employee. The Coloplast employee is currently represented by a team of Verrill Dana attorneys.
