Motions Practice in Employment Cases filed in Maryland's Federal Court
Thursday, October 01, 2020, 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT
Category: MWELA Events

This event was originally scheduled for April 2, 2020.

U.S. Courthouse
6500 Cherrywood Lane
Greenbelt, Maryland 20770

Hear from top practitioners and judges on motions to dismiss, discovery, and summary judgment. Learn how employee-side attorneys draft complaints to best meet pleading standards, hunt for necessary information, and resist defense attempts to bar a trial through summary judgment. Hear from management attorneys on how they hold their opponents to plausibility standards at the pleadings stage, cabin discovery to embrace only what is appropriate and proportional to the case in controversy, and draft effective summary judgment motions. Finally, hear from three of our Federal Judges who will share their wisdom on how both sides can make their pleadings and motions practice more effective. 

The Seminar is organized into three panels:

1) Motions to Dismiss with:

  • Kristen Sinisi, Partner, Bernabei & Kabat, PLLC
  • Kristy Eriksson, Partner, Miles & Stockbridge, P.C.
  • Hon. Richard D. Bennett, United States District Judge

2) Summary Judgment with:

  • Michal Shinnar, Senior Associate, Gilbert Employment Law, P.C.
  • Donald E. English, Jr., Principal, Jackson Lewis
  • Hon. Ellen L. Hollander, United States District Judge

3) Discovery Motions with:

  • Donna W. Rucker, Deputy Managing Partner, Tully Rinckey, PLLC
  • Jay R. Fries, Partner, Ford Harrison
  • Hon. Timothy Sullivan, United States Magistrate Judge

A reception will follow the panels.
