Pursuant to a recent federal court ruling, Philadelphia employment discrimination attorney Sidney L. Gold, Esq. will be permitted to provide expert testimony in a pending federal corporate shareholder lawsuit. In this Middle District of Pennsylvania matter, Plaintiff Lewis Grill (owner of the Atlantic Pacific Resource Group) offered Attorney Gold as an expert witness on employment discrimination practices. Defendant Sage Corporation filed a motion in limine seeking to bar Attorney Gold’s testimony.
According to a decision by U.S. Magistrate Judge Martin C. Carlson, Attorney Gold along with legal professor Arthur Laby, may provide expert testimony regarding accepted practices in employment discrimination litigation and corporate governance in closely-held companies. While the expert witnesses will be allowed to testify about their intimate background knowledge of employment litigation practices, neither expert witness will be allowed to discuss their own legal theories of the case.
Attorney Gold is a well-known employment discrimination lawyer who has over 30 years of experience in employment discrimination and civil rights matters including serving as lead counsel in nationwide class action employment discrimination lawsuits. In addition to authoring many articles in legal publications such as the Legal Intelligencer and Pennsylvania Law Weekly, Attorney Gold has appeared on radio and television to discuss trending employment law matters.
His dedication to employment law issues has led him to serve on numerous professional committees for the Philadelphia Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Institute. As an expert witness, he will be testifying based on his extensive knowledge of employment discrimination practices based on his experience representing both private and public sector employees and employers.
