Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 116 F.3d 480 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted May 23, 1997. Filed June 9, 1997

Before MURPHY, HEANEY, and MAGILL, Circuit Judges.


Anthony McFarlin was fired by McDonnell Douglas Corporation in 1993, later rehired, and then terminated in 1994. McFarlin sued, claiming that McDonnell Douglas had discriminated against him on the basis of his race in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et. seq.; 42 U.S.C. § 1981; the Missouri Human Rights Act, Mo.Rev.Stat. §§ 213.010 et. seq.; and state common law.1  The district court granted summary judgment in favor of McDonnell Douglas, and McFarlin appeals. A careful review of the record shows that McFarlin did not make a sufficient showing to withstand the motion for summary judgment. See Celotex Corp. v. Catrett, 477 U.S. 317, 322 (1986). The judgment is therefore affirmed.


McFarlin also sued his union and a fellow employee, but has abandoned his appeal from the summary judgment dismissing his claims against them
