Scott Wilson has handled more than 185 cases in federal district courts, 35 appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, three petitions for writs to the Supreme Court of the United States, and numerous trials and appeals in Louisiana district and appellate courts.
In a landmark ruling, I obtained a reversal from the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals of a summary judgment granted by the district court in the first Family and Medical Leave Act case heard by any federal appellate court. See Manuel v. Westlake Polymers Corp., 66 F.3d 758 (5th Cir. 1995). In another landmark decision, I obtained a reversal from the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, resulting in a definition of the relevant standards to be applied in analyzing Louisiana's anti-SLAPP statute, La. C.C.P. art. 971. Lozovyy v. Kurtz, (5th Cir. 2015), 813 F.3d 576.
Previously, I worked for a large international firm in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I have published numerous articles and am a frequent speaker on employment law and other topics.
