LA County, Gascon Lawyers Respond to Veteran Prosecutor’s Suit

0

Lawyers for Los Angeles County and District Attorney George Gascon have responded to an amended lawsuit filed by a veteran prosecutor who alleges that he suffered a backlash for being a critic of Gascon, saying some of the plaintiff’s s claims were filed too late and that still others should be resolved instead in a workers compensation claim.

The defense attorneys filed their court papers on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court in response to the amended lawsuit brought May 13 by Deputy District Attorney Jon Hatami, who now alleges eight causes of action compared to the five in his original complaint filed last Sept. 3.

“Plaintiff fails to state facts sufficient to constitute claims upon which relief can be granted…,” the defense attorneys state in their court papers. “Insofar as plaintiff seeks recovery for alleged physical and/or emotional injury based on conduct by defendants that neither contravenes fundamental California public policy nor exceeds the risks inherent in the employment relationship … the exclusive remedy for these alleged injuries is an action or a claim under the Workers’ Compensation Act.”
