Wagner v. Corinthian Colleges
DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more
TELG client Christine Wagner presented direct evidence of discriminatory animus by producing evidence that a supervisor told her that she was “singled out” because she was female.
What Happened in Court
California district court denied the defendants motion for summary judgment because Wagner raised a genuine issue of material fact as to whether she was terminated because of her gender by providing deposition testimony that she was qualified for her position, had a lot of enthusiasm, demonstrated a positive attitude, and was likely to succeed under anyone’s leadership because of her skills and talent. Wagner also presented evidence that the only other female employee was terminated in the same month.
