LaFary v. Rogers Group, Inc., 09-1139

In plaintiff's suit against her former employer for age and sex discrimination and retaliation after she was let go for taking more than six months of leave necessitated by complications with her pregnancy, district court's grant of defendant's motion for summary judgment on all counts is affirmed where: 1) district court properly granted motion for summary judgment on plaintiff's claim that a transfer was motivated by pregnancy discrimination as she has not presented evidence that would support a finding that her employer knew that she was pregnant when he decided the transfer; and 2) plaintiff's evidence falls short of raising a genuine issue of fact on her claim that defendant's decisions to terminate her employment and then not to rehire her violated Title VII's prohibitions against pregnancy discrimination and retaliation.
