McCoy v. Maytag Corp., 06-2417

In a suit alleging breach of a collective bargaining agreement and retaliation for filing a worker's compensation claim, summary judgment for defendant-employer is affirmed where: 1) defendant articulated a legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason for terminating plaintiff's employment, and plaintiff failed to show that defendant's proffered reason was a pretext; and 2) plaintiff's breach of contract claim failed because he did not exhaust his administrative remedies under the CBA prior to filing suit, and his claim did not meet any of the three exceptions to the exhaustion rule.
