Plaintiff sued defendant, her employer, for employment discrimination following her termination, after defendant laid off plaintiff pursuant to a company restructuring. The district court granted summary judgment to defendant, after denying plaintiff’s motion to strike an email attached to defendant’s motion for defendant’s failure to produce it during discovery.
Where plaintiff failed to present evidence to create a triable question as to whether defendant’s nonretaliatory reason for terminating plaintiff was pretextual and that defendant acted in retaliation, the district court properly granted summary judgment to defendant.
Judgment is affirmed.
