Hance v. Norfolk S. Ry. Co., No. 07-5475

By FindLaw Staff on July 01, 2009 12:00 PM

In an action under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) claiming that Defendant terminated Plaintiff based on his military service, judgment for Plaintiff is affirmed where evidence of anti-military animus from a decisionmaker, combined with the close temporal relationship between Plaintiff's leave for military service and his discharge, were sufficient to support the District Court's finding that Plaintiff was discharged in violation of USERRA.
