Managing Partner, A. Marques Pitre, and Pitre & Associates featured in Law360 as a result of a successful $123,500 settlement in a race and (reverse) sexual orientation discrimination suit against the Department of Labor

The Client hired the firm in 2021 to draft and file his race and sexual orientation discrimination suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. After taking the case through discovery, including deposing the Government’s responsible management official, DOL conceded that settlement would be the best resolution of this case. Resultantly, Managing Partner, A. Marques Pitre, was able to successfully negotiate terms that included a lump sum payment of $60,510, the Client being promoted to a GS-13, Step 6, and reimbursement of $62,900 in attorney’s fees at current Laffey Rates; totaling a cash recovery of $123,500.

Due to the novel circumstances surrounding this case, Law360 has been tracking its progress and its final article is attached below.
