Alvarez v. Des Moines Bolt Supply, Inc., No. 09-1465

By FindLaw Staff on November 17, 2010 1:13 PM

Sexual Harassment Action

In Alvarez v. Des Moines Bolt Supply, Inc., No. 09-1465, an action claiming that plaintiff was subjected to sexual harassment from co-workers and was retaliated against by defendant, the court affirmed summary judgment for defendant where plaintiff failed to present sufficient evidence to support a conclusion that defendant's proffered reason for suspending her was pretext for a retaliatory motive.


As the court wrote:  "Veronica Alvarez asserts that while she was employed at Des Moines Bolt Supply, Inc. ("DMB"), she was subjected to sexual harassment from co-workers, and that the company retaliated against her when she complained about the harassment. Alvarez filed suit under Title VII and the Iowa Civil Rights Act, alleging retaliation and sex discrimination based on a hostile environment. The district court granted summary judgment for DMB, and Alvarez appeals. We affirm."
