Lewis v. Heartland Inns of Am., L.L.C., No. 08-3860

By FindLaw Staff on January 21, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a sex discrimination action, summary judgment for defendant is reversed where: 1) plaintiff's supervisor's criticism of plaintiff for lack of "prettiness" and the "Midwestern girl look" before terminating her could be found by a reasonable factfinder to be evidence of wrongful sex stereotyping; and 2) the district court erred in requiring plaintiff to offer evidence that similarly situated men were treated differently.
