Caltech, Glassblower Settle Plaintiff’s Discrimination, Retaliation Suit


A scientific glassblower who sued Caltech, alleging he was wrongfully fired in 2018 in retaliation for complaining about not being provided proper work accommodations for his medical conditions, has reached a settlement in his lawsuit against the school, attorneys in the case told a judge Thursday.

In the wake of the announcement of the resolution of plaintiff Brian Markowicz’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, Judge Richard L. Fruin cancelled Monday’s scheduled date to start trial.

The suit was filed in October 2020 and alleged wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation and failure to accommodate. Before working at Caltech, Markowicz was a scientific glassblower for the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech. In their court papers, Caltech lawyers denied any liability on the university’s part and argued Markowicz was not entitled to damages.
