Ellen Pao Has Filed an Appeal

Posted on 2 June, 2015 at 10:55

According to Reuters, attorneys for Ellen Pao have filed an appeal in her gender discrimination case. Earlier this year, Pao lost her discrimination lawsuit and the court has set a hearing to determine litigation costs. Pao's former employer is seeking close to a million dollars in litigation costs stemming from the lawsuit. Of course, Pao's lawyers are arguing she should not have to pay these costs.

According to the article, the settlement offer extended to Pao earlier in the year still stands. That offer would waive litigation costs if Pao waives her right to appeal. Earlier this year, Reuters also examined the affirmation rates of the appellate courts of California in discrimination cases and noted that Pao may have a tough time winning on appeal. 

It will be interesting to see what appellate issues are raised by Pao's lawyers. As with any appeal, the crux of the arguments will likely rest on whether prejudicial errors were made by the trial court.
