Appellate Division Reminds Litigants Of The Need To Produce Evidence To Sustain A Claim Under The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination
By Phillip C. Bauknight
In Solis v. Sher, Docket No. A-3251-10T3 (App. Div. Dec. 5, 2011), the Appellate Division affirmed the dismissal of plaintiff's pregnancy discrimination claim under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination ("LAD"), N.J.S.A. 10:5-1, et seq. As discussed more thoroughly, infra, the Court found that plaintiff failed to present any evidence supporting her belief that the employer's proffered reason for her discharge was false.
