Court of Appeal Affirms Ruling

Shareholder Mark Perelman and Associate Matthew Cebrian recently prevailed on appeal before the California First District Court of Appeal in an employment and fraud action entitled Smallwood v. Fremont Surgery Center.  The case arose after plaintiff’s termination from the Surgery Center when her position was eliminated.  Ms. Smallwood sued alleging a myriad of causes of action including wrongful termination, age discrimination, fraud, and intentional concealment. The trial court dismissed the case following defendant’s motion for summary judgment finding no legal or factual support for any of plaintiff’s contentions.  The court of appeals affirmed the lower court’s ruling and ordered Ms. Smallwood to pay the costs on appeal.
