A former Reed Smith associate who alleged wrongful termination against the firm won a victory Thursday in the D.C. Court of Appeals, which reversed the dismissal of the suit and remanded the case for trial in Superior Court. Danielle Cesarano, who now works at the State Department, filed the complaint in 2003. She had complained that the firm was not providing her reasonable accommodation for a physiological disorder she developed after burning her hand in 2001 at a Reed Smith trial training program.
