Verdicts & Settlements

March 5, 2014- Brian Heller and Davida Perry of Schwartz & Perry won a $1.3 million jury verdict against UPS in a sexual harassment trial. Our client had been subject to repeated acts of sexual harassment at UPS, and retained Schwartz & Perry to represent her. After a five week trial, the jury awarded our client compensatory and punitive damages.

Schwartz & Perry is proud to announce that, on January 25, 2013, a jury, after two days of deliberation, returned a verdict in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut in favor of our client on her retaliation claim against her employer awarding $200,000 for emotional distress and $ 1 million in punitive damages. The case was tried by Schwartz & Perry attorneys Brian Heller and Matthew T. Schatz. The plaintiff alleged that after she complained about sexual harassment, she was stripped of job responsibilities and punished for her complaint.


April 14, 2011 - Schwartz & Perry recently completed another trial in Supreme Court, New York County, in which we represented three former employees in an action involving their former employer in which our clients prevailed in every respect. This favorable verdict was the second occasion in less than one month in which our clients fully prevailed by securing a jury verdict after trial. We are pleased at our good fortune on behalf of our clients.
