B&F Case on Appeal: A Jury Should Decide.

The Honest Belief Rule is a tool courts use to let companies off the hook for allegedly biased employment actions if the company offers legitimate reasons based on incorrect information they trusted at the time. Whether an employer honestly believed the incorrect reason it gave for the termination or whether that reason was just a bogus excuse for discrimination is a matter best decided by a jury, and the Eleventh Circuit is about to weigh in. Barrett & Farahany attorneys continue to advocate for the plaintiff in the case, and you can read more about it here:
