Kulikowski v. Board of County Com'rs. of County.

U.S. District Court

TITLE VII

GENDER DISCRIMINATION

RETALIATION

Kulikowski v. Board of County Com'rs. of County, 231 F.Supp.2d 1053 (D.Colo. 2002). A white male former county employee brought an action against a county and supervisors alleging sex discrimination and retaliation in violation of Title VII, denial of equal protection, and retaliation for exercising his free speech rights. The district court held that genuine issues of material fact precluded summary judgment on the Title VII retaliation and gender discrimination claims, and that the employee established a prima facie case of reverse discrimination. The court found that the employee's poor work performance might have been a pretext for retaliation against the employee. The employee, who had worked for the county community corrections department for 18 years, had repeatedly questioned the management and make-up of a local domestic violence program, noting that the program's board was composed entirely of females. The employee had suggested that the program might be violating the county's funding regulations. (Boulder County Community Corrections, CO)
