The plaintiff is a former employee of the firm’s long time client, Spartan Staffing. Plaintiff was a temporary worker
assigned to a manufacturing facility. While in the course and scope of his employment, Plaintiff suffered a tragic
injury involving a piece of industrial machinery. Plaintiff sued Spartan Staffing and its operations manager seeking to
evade workers compensation immunity. Robert Bleakley first obtained dismissal of Spartan Staffing and ultimately summary
judgment on workers compensation immunity for its manager. Florida’s Fifth District Court of Appeal affirmed the trial
court’s order. Ultimately, Spartan Staffing and its manager obtained a final judgment against the Plaintiff for its taxable costs.
