Takele v. Mayo Clinic, No. 08-1980

By FindLaw Staff on August 17, 2009 4:02 PM

In a discrimination and retaliation action brought by an employee, the district court did not err in granting summary judgment in favor of defendant where the plaintiff failed to make a prima facie case of racial discrimination as plaintiff did not show facts giving rise to an inference of discrimination. Furthermore, even if he could establish his prima facie case, defendant nevertheless articulated a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for terminating him and plaintiff failed to point to any evidence supporting a finding of pretext.
