A white, Orthodox Jew was terminated from her teaching position at the end of the school year. During the year, the teacher had issues entering her grades on time and the failure rate in her class increased. After she was terminated, the teacher was replaced with a non-Jewish teacher.
The teacher sued her former employer, alleging racial and religious discrimination and retaliation for protected activity. The court granted summary judgment to the school, finding that the school had demonstrated legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for terminating the teacher. The teacher appealed the decision.
