Sutherland v. Missouri Dep't of Corr., No. 08-3000

By FindLaw Staff on September 08, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In plaintiff's employment discrimination lawsuit under Title VII, summary judgment for the Missouri Department of Corrections is affirmed where: 1) the district court correctly granted summary judgment on a hostile work environment claim as the offensive conduct did not constitute actionable harassment under Title VII; and 2) district court correctly granted the summary judgment on the retaliation claim as plaintiff failed to prove that a reasonable person would perceive as retaliatory the actions she found offensive, and actions by her co-workers are not sufficient to support a conclusion that they were materially adverse retaliatory actions.
