The jury returned a verdict on June 1, 2012, finding that (1) plaintiff was not threatened with discharge because of her obligation to serve jury duty; and (2) plaintiff’s obligation to serve jury duty was not a substantial or motivating factor in her termination. The court entered judgment in favor of defendant.
