Candina v. Univ. of Miami

185 F. Supp. 3d 1343 (S.D. Fla. 2015). The Firm represented a private university in a lawsuit brought by a registered nurse formerly employed by the university. The nurse brought claims under Title VII and the Florida Civil Rights Act, alleging that the University discriminated against her because of her sexual orientation and retaliated against her because she complained about discrimination. The Firm filed a motion to dismiss, arguing that Title VII and the FCRA do not apply to claims based on sexual orientation. The district court granted the university’s motion and dismissed all of the nurse’s claims.
