Hello and thank you for your question.
To defeat a motion for summary judgment, you need to present some triable evidence to show that you could have a case. In a summary judgment hearing, a judge will look at all the evidence you present, disregarding any conflicting evidence on behalf of the defendants, assuming everything that you say is true and everything they say is false. So, the summary judgment motion would never be granted just because the employer was lying, but rather because you have presented enough evidence to show that you do in fact have a case. This can be in the forms of affidavits, statements concerning lack of write-ups or anything else you can think of.
As to which cases you can use, you can use anything that is relevant to your situation. Two cases which you may be able to use are:
However, the facts of your case are very specific to you. You should consider going to "Google Scholar" by clicking on this link:
and searching for legal documents in California relating to the specific facts that you are dealing with.
When you limit your search, you should include all cases in California, as well as all Supreme Court cases and all appellate cases dealing with California.
You can also do what most attorneys do, which is to get a subscription to Westlaw, or Lexis which are legal databases. The other option, is to find an employment attorney in your area who already have these services, and who might be willing to take your case at no expense to you. If you decide to hire an attorney, a great resource is www.Martindale.com. This is a nationwide directory that is useful in finding highly qualified legal specialists in various fields of law. The lawyers in Martindale are not selected because they paid to be included, but rather because they have been rated by other attorneys as qualified experts in their field. Consider consulting with two or three different attorneys prior to selecting the one you feel most comfortable with.
Finally, regarding "Id," Id is a legal term for making a citation. It means, "same as above." If it says Id at 354, this means that it is the same citation as the last one, but at page 365 instead of the page originally referenced. So, for example, you may see something like:
Wilson v. Mar. Overseas Corp., 150 F.3d 1, 6-7 (1st Cir. 1998).
This is a citation to the original source where that qoute was found. If you see another qoute, and then the words Id. This means that the following quote can also be found in the same case, statute, journal, etc. as above.
