Court Rejects Discriminatory Failure to Hire Claim Based Solely on Applicant’s Own Allegations.

Ogletree Deakins • December 16, 2008
Plaintiff applied for a State Trooper position and was initially found to be qualified after a background check. Approximately eight months passed before a final hiring decision was made, and the State determined that a second investigation and background check was necessary. Following the subsequent investigation and background check, the State found Plaintiff to be unqualified for the position. Plaintiff filed suit alleging that the State’s decision not to hire him was based on national origin discrimination.
