[url=“”>Second Circuit Permits Title VII Claim Based on Association to Proceed.</A>
The Second Circuit recently reversed a trial court’s decision granting summary judgment in favor of an employer, holding that an employer may violate Title VII if it takes action against an employee because of the employee’s association with a person of another race. See Holcomb v. Iona College (April 1, 2007). In this case, Holcomb, who is white, claimed the college discharged him from his job as an assistant basketball coach because he was married to a black woman. The college claimed he was discharged as part of an overhaul of its staff in an effort to improve a poorly performing basketball team.
