Court appearance no grounds for public policy discharge claim

In Sewell v. Macado's, Inc., Judge Conrad of the W.D. Va. denied the defendant employer's motion to dismiss as to all but the plaintiff's wrongful discharge claim, but concluded there is no public policy wrongful discharge claim based on Va. Code 18.2-465.1. The plaintiff claimed she was fired for attending a hearing in a domestic relations matter in California.
