Verdicts, Settlements & Arbitrations

Participated in trials resulting in $3 Million jury award and $1.1 Million jury award.

Said one client about Dr. Namie’s effect on his settlement:

“Your report on my behalf turned the table on the defendants by exposing [their investigations] as not only being false in predicate, but also probative of the retaliation that formed the basis for my lawsuit. Your report both rehabilitated my character while exposing the schemes of those who shaped the reports as evidence of institutional abuse.”

Wrote one satisfied client:

“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.
