Beaumont-Jacques v. Farmers Group, B239855

Summary judgment for defendants in an action for breach of contract and discrimination arising out of plaintiff's work as a District Manager for defendants, is affirmed, where: 1) the record below demonstrates that plaintiff exercised meaningful discretion with reference to her efforts; 2) while defendants had input over the quality and direction of those efforts, they did not have sufficient "control of the details" with respect to those efforts; and thus, 3) the trial court properly ruled that plaintiff was an independent contractor and all of her claims must fail.
