Jade McKenzie and Steven Pham

McKenzie represented the plaintiff and Pham represented the defendant. The brief covered questions as to whether a plaintiff is protected under Title VII’s anti-retaliation provision as a result of plaintiff’s participation in an EEOC investigation about his own sexual misconduct.
