Even though the employee was wronged, the employer is still the employer and gets to make all of the decisions. You could not possibly win suing the guy. Would he want you back after he spent $150,000 defending himself or let 's say he chose to settle out of court. It would still cost him several hundred dollars initially and then there is the court record. Since he gets to make all of the decisions, how do you think he is going to feel about your actions in filing a lawsuit against him. No employer is going to want you back after that. Your best bet would be to show that you did not do it - whatever it is that got you fired. But do not put the blame on him. Just show that you did not do it. If that fails, there is nothing you can do but move on. Anyway, a judge cannot force any employer to keep or hire an employee. Employers have the right to choose who they hire and who they keep and who they get rid of.
