Schiller, Pittenger & Galvin, P.C.’s Robert Woodruff recently represented a former vice principal in the Elizabeth School District in a claim for constructive termination due to the board of education’s violation of his civil rights, in particular, interfering with his role as an elected union president.
A two-week trial in Union County resulted in a jury verdict awarding the client $600,000. Pre-judgment interest will bring the total judgment to over $700,000. The firm is seeking an award of counsel fees, in addition to the verdict amount, as provided by statute.
Schiller, Pittenger & Galvin, P.C., has attorneys who are experienced in representing clients in civil rights cases, including misconduct by government agencies, such as school boards and the police.
