A federal appeals court on Thursday affirmed a jury’s verdict in favor of McGuireWoods and a McGuireWoods partner in Baltimore in a suit filed by a legal secretary alleging retaliation and defamation.

The suit, filed in October 2006 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, alleged the firm and a partner, Joseph Tirone, retaliated against Nancy Adair, who sought time off under the Family Medical Leave Act. A jury in 2007 sided with the defendants. Click here for a copy of Adair’s complaint. A copy of McGuireWoods’ memo in support of a motion to dismiss is here.
