Hicks v. Baines, No. 06-3782

In a Title VII action based on defendants' alleged retaliation against plaintiffs for their complaints regarding workplace discrimination, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed in part where plaintiffs' allegations in support of many of their claims were overly conclusory.  However, the order is vacated in part where a reasonable jury could find for plaintiffs on their claims regarding defendant's allegedly punitive changes to plaintiff's work schedule.
