Successfully defended Cree Inc., a leading manufacturer of LED technology, in a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit from the time of filing through the denial of the plaintiff's petition for review before the United States Supreme Court. This lawsuit was the second filed by the pro se plaintiff while remaining employed with Cree. The plaintiff claimed to experience harassment and discrimination as a result of the filing of an earlier lawsuit against Cree. We obtained a dismissal of the plaintiff's lawsuit from the district court. On appeal, the Fourth Circuit Court affirmed the district court's decision and the United States Supreme Court denied plaintiff's petition for certiorari.
