Royal v. CCC& R Tres Arboles, L.L.C., No. 12-11022 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff appealed the district court's grant of summary judgment on her retaliation claim, which she claimed resulted from her complaints about sexual harassment. The court held that there were genuine disputes of material fact as to whether the conduct at issue created a hostile work environment in violation of Title VII, and, if so, whether plaintiff's complaint about that conduct was causally related to her termination. Accordingly, the court vacated and remanded for further proceedings, concluding that plaintiff had made out a prima facie case on her retaliation claim.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on January 20, 2014.
