Laouini v. CLM Freight Lines, Inc., No. 08-3721

By FindLaw Staff on August 21, 2009 3:05 PM

In an employment discrimination case, district court's grant of summary judgment for defendant on grounds that the plaintiff failed to timely file a charge with the EEOC is vacated and remanded where defendant failed to show absence of a genuine factual dispute over whether plaintiff's charge had been timely filed via fax where it was not the plaintiff who had to prove receipt, but the defendant who had to prove the absence of receipt and a fax confirmation creates a factual dispute sufficient to preclude summary judgment.
