Barrow v. Greenville Indep. Sch. Dist., 05-11151
Summary judgment to a school district on a teacher's 42 U.S.C. section 1983 and Title VII disparate impact claims is affirmed where: 1) the district court correctly held that the superintendent of defendant-school district did not act as a policymaker for the district in refusing to recommend a teacher for promotion; and 2) the evidence supported a conclusion that superintendent did not recommend plaintiff because her children were not attending the public schools, not because her children were attending a religious school.
