Gomez-Gonzalez v. Rural Opportunities, Inc., 09-2557

Plaintiff's wrongful termination suit against former employer

Gomez-Gonzalez v. Rural Opportunities, Inc., 09-2557, concerned a plaintiff's suit against her former employer, claiming violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Employment Retirement Income Securities Act (ERISA), and wrongful discharge and mental distress under Puerto Rico law.

In affirming the district court's grant of defendant's motion to dismiss the federal claims and dismissal of the pendent states claims, the court held that plaintiff has failed to come forward with evidence establishing that her termination was pretextual and she has not come forward with evidence establishing that defendant failed to provide her with a reasonable accommodation or that defendant was liable for any denial of disability benefits.
