A federal judge denied a plaintiff’s bid to reconsider an order, rejecting her claims that, because she’s a law school graduate, she was held to “a higher standard than a simple pro se litigant.”

In September, the plaintiff, Jerri Joann Johnson, filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against O’Connell & Lawrence Inc., a multidisciplinary engineering and consulting firm in Olney, Maryland. Johnson, a 2011 law school graduate, filed the complaint on her own behalf, according to the opinion filed Monday by the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.
