POSTPONED: Obtaining and Surviving Summary Judgment in Employment Discrimination Cases After Bulwer and Verdrager

Thursday, May 23, 2019 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


The 2016 SJC decisions in Bulwer v. Mount Auburn Hospital and Verdrager v. Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky, & Popeo, P.C. clarified what a plaintiff must show to avoid summary judgment in employment discrimination cases under G.L. c. 151B.  Since Bulwer and Verdrager, there have been several cases granting and several cases denying summary judgment to employers in G.L. c. 151B cases.  These cases provide a roadmap for practitioners regarding what evidence of pretext will suffice or not suffice to avoid summary judgment.  In this brown bag panel, we will discuss these post-Bulwer and post-Verdrager cases with a focus on illuminating guidance for practitioners on both sides of the “v” to use in their summary judgment practice.
