Okoli v. City of Baltimore, No. 08-2198

In a Title VII action for harassment and retaliation, summary judgment in favor of the defendant is reversed where plaintiff's allegations that her boss forcibly kissed her, fondled her leg, propositioned her, asked sexually explicit questions, described sexual activities he wished to perform, and then, after she spurned the advances and filed a harassment complaint, fired her are sufficient to sustain claims of hostile work environment, quid pro quo harassment, and retaliation.
