In the case of Gardner v. Summit Cty. Edn. Serv. Ctr., N.D. Ohio No. 5:15CV1270, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 36275., a preschool teacher alleged that an educational service center (“ESC”) interfered with his Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) leave and retaliated against him for taking FMLA leave by non-renewing his teaching contact. McGown & Markling represented the ESC in this case, and successfully obtained summary judgment on all of the claims asserted by the teacher.
