CHEN v. COUNTY OF ORANGE, G027307
The dismissal of a former district attorney's suit claiming marital status discrimination and retaliation by D.A.'s office was affirmed because mere sequential evidence is not sufficient to make a prima facie case of retaliation, and any "adverse action" by employer was at most only the result of antipathy toward a particular co-worker with whom she had, married or not, a relationship.
