Windross v. Barton Protective Serv., Inc., No. 08-2254

In plaintiff's employment discrimination, retaliatory harrasment, and hostile work environment action against his former employer, district court's entry of summary judgment for the defendant is affirmed where: 1) district court did not err in holding that the continuing violation doctrine is not available to plaintiff to overcome his time-barred claims; 2) district court did not err in its concluding that there was no evidence of pretext in plaintiff's disciplining, suspension, or termination; and 3) district court acted within its discretion in denying plaintiff's motion to amend and motion for reconsideration as his hostile work environment claim was time-barred.
