Case Summary

A-19-0421, Constance Shedrack (Appellant) v. Ambassador Health of Omaha

District Court of Douglas County, Judge Thomas A. Otepka

Attorney for Appellant: John Rehm (Rehm, Bennet, Moore)

Attorneys for Appellee: Marnie Jensen, Kamron Hasan, Quinn Eaton (Husch Blackwell LLP)

Civil: employment retaliation

Action Taken by Trial Court: The district court granted summary judgment in Appellee’s favor. The district court found that the Appellant failed to prove any causal connection between the protected activity and her termination, that the Appellee proved a nondiscriminatory reason for terminating the Appellant’s employment, and that there was no pretextual reason for the Appellant’s termination.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Appellant argues that the district court erred in applying an overly stringent standard for her prima facie case and in finding that there was no causal link between protected activity and the termination of her employment.
