A wrongful termination lawsuit filed against Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman by Gregory Berry


Gregory Berry, a former first-year associate with Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman, filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the firm. Berry accuses the firm of neglectful misrepresentation, illegal termination, infringement of employment contract, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other things. In argument to this, Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman wants the case to be dismissed. The firm claims that Berry signed a separation agreement with the firm in exchange for severance pay and other benefits and gave up his right to sue as part of that agreement. Berry also accuses the firm to have violated the separation agreement by disallowing access to his e-mail and phone. He has claimed $2.55 million in estimated income he lost as a result of being fired, as well $75 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
