A-19-387, Jackson (Appellant) v. Douglas County, Nebraska, et al.

Douglas County, District Court Judge Horacio Wheelock

Attorney for Appellant:  Darnetta L. Hunter

Attorney for Appellee:  Sandra Connolly, Courtney M. Wiresinger (Douglas County Attorney's Office),

Civil Action:  Employment Discrimination

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The appellant brought a lawsuit against Douglas County and his employer, the Douglas County Health Department, alleging employment discrimination under: (1) the Nebraska Fair Employment Practices Act (NFEPA); (2) Title VII of the Civil Rights Act; and (3) Neb. Rev. Stat § 20-148 (Reissue 2012). The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the appellees. 

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  On appeal, the appellant contends that the district court erred in: (1) determining that there was no direct evidence of discrimination as it relates to his claim under NFEPA; (2) determining that the record did not present genuine issues of material fact to the pretextual prong of the McDonnell Douglas burden shifting test as it relates to his claim under NFEPA and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act; and (3) resolving factual issues at the summary judgment stage of the case.
