The New Jersey Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal by a former Curtiss-Wright Corp. employee whose $10.6 million sex discrimination judgment was reversed because she shared confidential company records with her lawyer.
The issue, in Quinlan v. Curtiss-Wright Corp., C-321-09, is whether an employee’s acquiring of company information in the normal course of her job, and communicating it to her attorney in her discrimination case, is protected activity for which retaliation is actionable. So far, a trial judge has said yes, an appeals court has said no.
