Former Southern California Edison employees Alfredo Martinez and Justin Page raised concerns about rampant sexual and racial harassment at the company’s Torrance, California, office in 2017. In the months that followed, Martinez was targeted with complaints from some of the alleged bad actors and terminated. Page, who had made his complaints anonymously, received threats, had a mental breakdown and took a leave of absence from which he never returned.

Our Litigators of the Week, David deRubertis of The deRubertis Law Firm and Brennan Kahn of Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison won an astounding retaliation verdict against So Cal Edison and its parent company Edison International for Martinez and Page early this month. A Los Angeles County Superior Court awarded Martinez $422,377,265, including $400 million in punitive damages, and awarded Page $42,200,000, including $40 million in punitives.
