Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 124 F.3d 207 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted Sept. 5, 1997. Filed Sept. 11, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas.

Before FAGG, BOWMAN, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


Lisa R. Childers appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment to Childers's employer in Childers's employment discrimination lawsuit. Having carefully considered the record, and assuming Childers established the elements of a prima facie case, we agree with the district court that there is no substantial evidence in the record tending to show that Wal-Mart's articulated reasons for Childers's demotion were a pretext for sex discrimination. We thus conclude the district court correctly granted summary judgment, and we affirm without further discussion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
