Moneyish

At this point, Brantner added, “it’s too soon to see whether or not whether we’ve had a true cultural shift.” “Are they going to be consistent, are they going to have policies that they uniformly enforce, are people going to feel safe coming forward, are they going to be protected from retaliation?” she asked. “Is the change real?”

Perez v. City of Roseville

Reversing the district court's summary judgment in favor of the defendants in a former probation officer's claim of the violation of her rights to privacy and intimate association and affirming the grant of summary judgment on the former officer's due process and gender discrimination claims in a case involving an internal affairs investigation that turned up a romance between officers because a genuine factual dispute existed regarding whether the relationship and termination had a connection to negative job performance.

O'Farrell v. Department of Defense

Reversing a Merit Systems Protection Board decision denying a claim under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act that the Department of Defense failed to grant military leave to an employee for active military service because the Board abused its discretion in determining that the employee wasn't entitled to additional leave.

Solus Industrial Innovations, LLC v. The Superior Court of Orange County

Reversing the Court of Appeals determination that an action brought by the Orange County District Attorney for civil penalties under state unfair competition laws was preempted by federal Occupational Safety and Health Act regulations because the state regulations did not encroach on a field fully occupied by federal law or thwart federal objectives, nor did the structure and language of the federal act indicate Congress's clear intent to preempt such claims.
