NFL Bullying Scandal

“My first, and last, call for a national expert in workplace bullying was to Gary Namie”
        -David Cornwell

Qualified for Federal Court

Listen to the March 11, 2014 teleconference for the Young Lawyer Division of the Employment Law Section of the American Bar Association with Lindsey Wagner, Monique Gougisha Doucette and Kerri Stone

Wrote one satisfied client:

“Your report on my behalf turned the table on the defendants … shortly after being served with your report, they appeared eager to end the matter quickly … it was now I who was on the offensive… They had good reason to panic since your report disrobed the sinister guile of the defendants … you walk a fine line very well that served to rehabilitate me, expose and condemn the conduct of my employer, while preventing the defendants from undoing all of that work.”

The first U.S. “Bullying” Trial

In 2005, Dr. Gary Namie testified as an expert witness in an Indianapolis state court trial. The plaintiff Doescher won in trial court and in the Indiana State Supreme Court. The jury award of $325,000 was sustained. The precedent-setting statement from the Supreme Court opinion:

The phrase ‘workplace bullying,’ like other general terms used to characterize a person’s behavior, is an entirely appropriate consideration … workplace bullying could be considered a form of intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Because of the harmful conduct by a self-representing client (emotional target), no services can be rendered without discussion with the representing attorney first.

He is also available for arbitration testimony.
