By FindLaw Staff on September 08, 2009 4:50 PM

In an action claiming that defendant discriminated against plaintiff airline pilot on account of her sex when it suspended her from flying certain routes, summary judgment for defendant is reversed where: 1) crew resource management skills were a subjective qualification that could not be considered in evaluating a plaintiff's qualifications at the first step of the McDonnell Douglas test; and 2) similarly situated male pilots were treated more favorably than plaintiff was.
