Katie Weaver Hartzog recently won a Motion to Dismiss on police officer’s failure to promote claim against a North Carolina city. The plaintiff had applied for a promotion and did not score well enough on the written exam in order to be promoted. He contended that some of the answers were scored incorrectly. Ms. Hartzog successfully argued that the police officer did not have a property interest in the position he sought. The trial court entered a judgment in favor of the city.
The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
