After a four day trial, federal jury awarded our client, Jennifer B. Campbell, $555,000 in back pay and other damages. Our team proved to the jury that Ms. Campbell's former employer, the D.C. Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF), violated her due process rights by reporting negative allegations in the press without informing her.
On June 11, 2012, the DHCF terminated Ms. Campbell's employment, alleging that she attempted to interfere with the bidding process for health information technology and health insurance exchange contracts. In the course of litigation, Ms. Campbell produced evidence that each of the DHCF's allegations were false.
The outcome of this trial was published in the Washington Post. Following the trial, Ms. Campbell stated ""I feel as though I finally have been able to voice the truth and be heard."
Congratulations to Ms. Campbell for this successful outcome.
