Federal Court Jury Awards CWP&G Client $1.365 Million Verdict on Breach of Contract and Retaliation Claims

CWP&G is pleased to announce on behalf of their client, Dr. Paul Matus, that a federal court jury issued a verdict in his favor on his claims for breach of contract and retaliation against the Lorain County General Health District.  The jury awarded Dr. Matus $1,365,175.00 to compensate him for the damages he has suffered.

Dr. Matus’ April 2013 Complaint alleged that the Health District breached its contract with Dr. Matus and, in doing so, violated its obligations of good faith and fair dealing with Dr. Matus. In addition, the Complaint alleged the Health District’s termination of Dr. Matus’ employment contract was in retaliation for his participation in an investigation of charges leveled against him.

David M. Cuppage and Margaret M. Metzinger, principals of the firm, vigorously fought to restore the reputation and standing of Dr. Matus throughout this process. They consider the jury’s verdict a complete vindication for Dr. Matus.  If you have any questions regarding this matter or any other employment related matter, please contact Scott D. Simpkins at 216-621-8484.
