California Court of Appeal

Johnson v. United Cerebral Palsy/Spastic Children's Found. of LA and Ventura Counties, B198888

In an employment termination action, trial court's grant of summary judgment for defendant is reversed where plaintiff presented a prima facie case that she was fired for an impermissible reason and also presented substantial evidence of pretext or discriminatory animus in her firing, and thus raised a triable issue of material fact regarding the reason for plaintiff's termination.
