Attorney Said Musa Says They Are Suing for Damages

Said Musa

According to Musa, BWS says that Menzies’ severance was included in his payout.  The others, represented by Tricia Pitts-Anderson, are also seeking general damages which Musa says can range from a couple thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“Sir, the other side mentioned a hundred and eighty-eight thousand dollars that was paid and the question of whether that included severance, can you clarify that for us?”

 

Said Musa, Attorney for Mark McKenzie

“Yes, well it is our contention that including in the damages should be severance pay for Mark Menzies.  The other side is saying that the pension payout included the severance but that should be a matter for the court to decide, you know.”

“How much are your clients asking for?”

 

Said Musa

“He’s actually asking for general damages for wrongful termination, I mean there are a lot of precedents that we could talk about hundreds of thousands of dollars or we could talk about a couple thousands of dollars but it’s a matter for the court taking into account whether or not exemplary damages should be awarded in this case, as was done for instance in the case of Christine Perriott, you know, which you are very familiar with.”
