Labor & Employment – Contract – Termination – Just Cause – DNA Testing – Intentionally Obscure Report – Duke Lacrosse Players – Exoneration (access required)

Meehan v. American Media International, LLC Plaintiff’s employment contract allowed the defendant-employer to terminate him for just cause, including substandard performance. Plaintiff admittedly made a “big error” when he wrote a report that obscured the fact that DNA test results exonerated Duke Lacrosse players who had been accused of rape and sexual assault. We affirm summary judgment for defendants on plaintiff’s breach of contract and tortious interference with contract claims. We vacate summary judgment on plaintiff’s Wage and Hour Act claim.
