AC43272 - Sieranski v. TJC Esq, A Professional Services Corp. (The plaintiff, Helen Sieranski, brought a three count complaint against her former employer, the defendant, TJC Esq, A Professional Services Corporation, seeking damages for wrongful termination, pregnancy discrimination, and gender discrimination (original complaint). The court granted the defendant's motion to strike the first count of the original complaint, in which the plaintiff alleged common-law wrongful termination in violation of the public policy outlined in General Statutes ยงยง 3-94h and 53a-157b. Thereafter, the plaintiff filed a revised complaint alleging, in one count, pregnancy discrimination. After the court rendered summary judgment as to that count, the plaintiff brought the present appeal in which she challenges the court's judgment striking count one of her original complaint. For the reasons set forth below, we reverse in part the judgment of the trial court.)
