Roetzel Prevails in Ohio Sex Discrimination Case Covered in CCH Employment Law Daily

A recent case in which Roetzel Partner Karen Adinolfi prevailed was featured in the March 13, 2013 issue of CCH Employment Law Daily. The case, Inskeep v. Western Reserve Transit Authority, affirms a lower court’s judgment on the pleadings in favor of the employer with respect to an employee’s sexual orientation discrimination claim.

The Ohio Seventh District Court of Appeals rejected the employee’s argument that sexual orientation is included within the meaning of the term “sex” under Ohio’s employment discrimination statute. The court also affirmed dismissal of the negligent infliction of emotional distress (NIED) claim because the employee did not sufficiently plead it and his affidavit was properly disregarded.
