Johnson v. Holder

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Employment Discrimination
Case Number: 
No. 12-1703
Decision Date: 
November 9, 2012
Federal District: 
N.D. Ill., E. Div.
Dist. Ct. did not err in granting defendant-employer’s motion for summary judgment in action alleging that defendant reassigned plaintiff to different job on account of her race, sex and/or age after plaintiff was involved in verbal altercation with co-worker. While plaintiff alleged that defendant treated certain co-workers more favorably, plaintiff failed to demonstrate that said co-workers were similarly situated for purposes of establishing prima facie discrimination case where plaintiff failed to show that said co-orkers were involved in similar misconduct, or that said co-workers shared plaintiff’s job description or supervisor.
