Alaniz v. Zamora-Quezada, No. 07-40325

In an action alleging sex discrimination against the director of certain medical clinics, judgment for plaintiffs is affirmed in part where: 1) the evidence of defendant's harassment of other parties was highly probative to demonstrating a systemic pattern of discrimination at the clinics and relevant to all plaintiffs; and 2) the court of appeals could not conclude that the hearsay testimony admitted by the district court had more than a slight effect on the jury's verdict.  However, the judgment is reversed in part where one plaintiff's placement on a two-week probationary period did not rise to the level of a tangible employment action.
