$15,000,000.00 VERDICT

Plaintiff hired Mr. Young three months before a six week trial of a complicated wrongful termination suit in which all parties, including the plaintiff, believed Plaintiff was an independent contractor and not entitled to protection as an employee under California Labor Code. The jury awarded Plaintiff $10,000,000.00 against the employer for wrongful termination in violation of public policy and fraud, and awarded Plaintiff $5,000,000.00 against the company owner for retaliation.
