Bend, Ore.-based GlasWeld’s motion for summary judgment was granted yesterday by the Deschutes County (Ore.) Circuit Court in the case filed against it last August by former president Mike Boyle, according to a representative of Judge Michael Adler’s office.

A summary judgment is "a final decision by a judge, upon a party's motion, that resolves a lawsuit before there is a trial," according to Nolo's online law dictionary.

Boyle had alleged that he was wrongfully discharged from employment with the company in August 2009, and that the company discriminated against him and others based on his religious beliefs.

GlasWeld’s motion for summary judgment was accompanied by a declaration by owner and current president Thomas Spoo, who says it was his decision to terminate Boyle’s employment in August 2009, and that the termination was made because “he was not performing in accordance with the reasonable expectations of the company.”

GlasWeld officials declined to comment on the decision at press time. Boyle had not yet responded to requests for comment.
