Attorney Daniel J. O’Connell Obtains a Default Judgment in Favor of his Client in a Sexual Harassment Case
On April 1, 2016, Attorney Daniel J. O’Connell obtained a Default Judgment in favor of his client (a Plaintiff) in the Hampden County Superior Court.
The Plaintiff was a victim of ongoing sexual harassment during her employment with her prior employers (Primary Care Associates, Inc. and Geriatric Medical Associates). She brought a lawsuit in the Hampden County Superior Court during 2014. After ongoing and strenuous litigation, the Plaintiff obtained a default against her prior employer earlier this year. After a hearing to determine the Plaintiff’s damages, the Honorable Judge Edward J. McDonough, Jr. felt that the Plaintiff suffered damages and awarded her damages to compensate her. Judge McDonough also ruled that the Plaintiff was entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses pursuant to M.G.L. c. 151B.
Great job, Attorney O’Connell!
