Interesting Sixth Circuit Mitigation Case

Thanks to Paul Mollica for the lead to Killian v. Yorozu Automotive Tennessee, Inc, (6th Cir. July 20, 2006). The case contains an interesting roadmap for litigants facing front pay and mitigation issues. Following her wrongful termination by the Defendant, the Plaintiff had difficulty replacing her 1st-shift factory job with similar employment. So she made a career change and started cosmotology. She succesfully obtained damages for 8 months of unemployment and FIVE years for front pay (difference between her old factory job and her new salary as a hair dresser). If you are dealing with mitigation issues, its an interesting read.
