Megan Bonanni Featured in Legal News for Serving Justice on Behalf of New "Hero"

megan-bonanniCivil rights attorney Megan Bonanni has a new "hero" in her life --- a developmentally disabled client, a long-term employee in a blue-collar job who was brutally harassed by supervisors because of his disability. "My client's bravery and resolve in the face of tremendous workplace abuse was very inspiring --- he withstood repeated acts of cruelty because of his disability --- he's a real hero," says Bonanni, a partner at Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers in Royal Oak who recently settled this case. "My client's co-workers were courageous enough to put their own jobs at risk by providing incredibly moving testimony in deposition after deposition --- chronicling the depth of the harassment that my client endured. It's often hard to get corroboration in discrimination cases." You can read the entire story from the Legal News here.
