OEST v. IL. DEPT CORRECTIONS, 99-3883
Where the record indicates that plaintiff did not provide sufficient evidence under the "direct-method" to create a triable issue of fact as to whether sex was a motivating factor in the defendant's decision to discipline and fire her, and that plaintiff failed to demonstrate that she was treated any differently than a similarly situated male employee using the "indirect-method" or burden-shifting approach, her Title VII claims would fail.
