Superior Court Grants Partial Judgment For Plaintiff on Claim For Unpaid Severance Payments

Casey v. Friends of the Capital Theater, Inc., C.A. No. 04C-03-022 JTV, 2006 WL _____ (Del. Super. Ct. June 21, 2006). Plaintiff sued former employer for breach of contract and wrongful discharge. The court ruled that plaintiff had resigned pursuant to a resignation agreement between the parties, which was binding upon both parties. The court also ruled, however, that the employer had failed to make severance payments required under that same agreement. After granting the employer a set off based on property that plaintiff took with him when he left and unemployment benefits plaintiff received, the court found that plaintiff was entitled to approximately $18,000.
