CERROS v. STEEL TECH., INC., 01-1293

In an employee's Title VII suit alleging employment discrimination based on race, summary judgment for employer was proper where it was not shown that an arguably racist philosophy was connected to any adverse employment action; but where appellant endured a workplace environment filled with slurs and graffiti based on his race, his hostile environment harassment claim was actionable.
