Appeals Court rules that “While we recognize why [the plaintiff] would find the letters unsettling, we are constrained by the statutory requirement of three separate acts of harassment.”
Earlier this week, I filed my clients’ appellate reply brief in the McHugh et al. v. Commonwealth of Massachusetts putative 7,700-member class action. A link to the brief is here: https://bit.ly/32A9W98
The case largely comes down to two core and important questions: First, is the Massachusetts doctrine of sovereign immunity constitutional? Second, should the largest employer in the state—the Commonwealth itself—be required to follow its own employment laws?
We hope to find out answers to both questions in the coming months.
