Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 61 F.3d 908 (8th Cir. 1995) Submitted: May 18, 1995. Filed: July 17, 1995

Before McMILLIAN, BEAM, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


Frederick Thomas, a black male, was employed as an addiction technician at St. Luke's Gordon Recovery Center from March 9, 1991, until he quit on July 2, 1992. Thomas sued his former employer, alleging race discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation, and a breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing. In a thorough and well-reasoned opinion, the district court granted summary judgment to the defendants. After a review of the record, we find that the district court was correct in concluding that Thomas's allegations are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
