By FindLaw Staff on February 05, 2010 2:25 PM

In plaintiff's pregnancy discrimination lawsuit against a city for being fired as a city bus-driver, trial court's judgment in favor of plaintiff is reversed and remanded where: 1) instructional error with respect to a mixed-motive defense entitled defendant-city to retrial; and 2) the instructional error did not entitle the city to judgment notwithstanding the verdict because there was substantial evidence to support the jury's verdict for plaintiff.
