Federal District Court Permits Race Discrimination Case to Proceed When Caucasian Security Officer Was Not Fired for Similar Conduct

A terminated African-American security officer sued his former employer for race discrimination. Despite having admitted that his employer was justified in terminating him for violating company policy, the employee later claimed that a Caucasian security officer received more favorable treatment in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. (Johnson v. Western Hotel & Casino, D. Nev., No. 10-cv-01590, 10/19/11).

Employer’s Honest Belief in Reason for Adverse Action May Overcome Claim of Discrimination.

A physician who sued a hospital, its medical staff, board of trustees, and CEO after his application for staff privileges was denied was unable to show that a hospital’s true reasons for the denial was race discrimination. Talwar v. Mercer County Joint Twp. Community Hosp., N.D. Ohio, No. 3:06cv3092, 1/15/09. In that case, a federal district court in Ohio granted summary judgment to the defendants, who had been sued for racial/national origin discrimination under 42 USC §§ 1981 and 1983 by an Asian-American surgeon after that physician was denied privileges to practice general surgery at the hospital.
