Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In Cung Hnin v. TOA (USA), LLC (SD Ind., Barker), a 17-page opinion, Judge Amy J. St. Eve, Northern District of Illinois, sitting by designation, writes:

On January 25, 2012, Cung Hnin (“Hnin”) filed a four-count Complaint against his former employer TOA (USA), LLC (“TOA”) alleging violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000, et seq., pursuant to the district court’s original jurisdiction, 28 U.S.C. § 1331, and two state law claims pursuant to the dis-trict court’s supplemental jurisdiction, 28 U.S.C. § 1367(a). On July 22, 2013, TOA filed a motion for summary judgment under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 56(a), and on October 31, 2013, the district court granted TOA’s summary judg-ment motion in full. On appeal, Hnin challenges the district court’s summary judgment ruling on his Title VII national origin discrimination claim and his Title VII retaliation claim. For the reasons set forth in the following opinion, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
