Thomas Kobin Succeeds in Reducing a Jury Award from $1 Million to $16,000 on Retrial


Thomas R. Kobin successfully defended the City of Newark in an employment retaliation case brought against the City by two police officers under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination.  The officers claimed that the City retaliated against them after they had made complaints of discrimination based on their national heritage.  The case was initially tried by counsel from another firm, and that jury awarded $1,000,000 in damages to the plaintiffs.  After the court ordered a retrial on damages, Mr. Kobin took over the case.  After a two week re-trial on damages, the second jury awarded the two plaintiffs a total of $16,000.
