House candidate Dunn dealt setback in bar lawsuit, but battle continues

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 18, 2016

It’s probably not going to help Joe Dunn’s congressional bid that he was fired from his last big job, executive director of the State Bar of California. But it would neutralize the issue if a lawsuit proves he was let go in retaliation for blowing the whistle on fellow bar officials for alleged improprieties.

So far, not so good on that front, as Dunn was dealt a setback in his wrongful termination suit earlier this month.

An arbitrator, retired U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Edward Infante, dismissed Dunn’s five claims – but said he could resubmit three if he provided more information to support the allegations. Dunn attorneyMark Geragos said he plans to file the amended claims by the May 1 deadline and expects a previously scheduled Aug. 10 arbitration hearing to proceed as planned.
