Hawks v. J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, No. 08-3668
In a sex discrimination action, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff failed to timely respond to defendant's motion to dismiss, and plaintiff's assertion in his motion for extension of time that his counsel was occupied with other hearings did not constitute excusable neglect; and 2) plaintiff's complaint failed to allege facts showing that he was treated differently from similarly-situated female employees.
