Attorney obtained summary judgment an insured law firm where a part time female associate claimed that she was discriminated against because of her status as a working mother

Attorney obtained summary judgment an insured law firm where a part time female associate claimed that she was discriminated against because of her status as a working mother. The court dismissed the plaintiff's claims for discrimination, hostile work environment and retaliation. He agreed with the defendant that plaintiff's sporadic claims that involved one offensive e-mail and a few isolated comments concerning her appearance did not create a hostile work environment as a matter of law. Nor did her claims that she was not given work other than worker's compensation files or that the firm did not respond to her marketing overtures rise to the level of hostile work environment or retaliation. Plaintiff was not discriminated against when she was denied a raise based on her low billable hours. The court held that Plaintiff had pointed to no competent evidence that the reasons for her alleged mistreatment were based on her sex, her status as a working mother, or the filing of EEOC Charges.
