Cook v. PatientEdu,, et al. Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (2013) — Attorney Minoff represented an executive who was formerly employed by a Massachusetts LLC that owed him over $60,000 in wages. The client brought suit against the LLC and its two managers under the Massachusetts Payment of Wages Act. Mr. Minoff was successful in persuading the appellate court to overturn the trial court's ruling dismissing the claims against the two managers based on the language of the Act, which did not address LLCs. The Supreme Judicial Court held, in a case of first impression, that individuals with significant involvement in the affairs of an LLC could be held personally liable under the Wage Act.
Harper v. Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Hampden County Superior Court (2012) — Mr. Minoff successfully represented a state employee who had been sexually harassed by an auditor while working as a clerk for the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Following a six-day trial, a jury returned a verdict against the state of Massachusetts which included $375,000 in punitive damages. The total judgment was in excess of $500,000.
