The whistleblower retaliation lawsuit filed against Infosys by Jay Palmer, which had been scheduled to go to trial on Aug. 20, has been postponed until Sept. 17.
U.S. District Court Judge Myron H. Thompson ordered the postponement earlier today. Here is the full text of the order, as filed in court documents:
Because the court needs additional time to resolve the pending summary-judgment motion after the parties were unable to mediate this case successfully and because the other civil case set on the August 20 term will be tried first and will take two to three weeks to try, it is ORERED that the jury selection and trial of this case are continued to September 17, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. at the Frank M. Johnson, Jr. United States Courthouse Complex, Courtroom 2FMJ, One Church Street, Montgomery, Alabama.
DONE, this the 15th day of August 2012.
According to court documents, Infosys filed the motion for summary judgment on April 20, 2012, “on the grounds that there is no genuine issue of material fact and Infosys is entitled to judgment as a matter of law” on the claims made by Palmer. Infosys requested in the motion that the case be dismissed.
