Deja vu, another retaliation claim goes forward

In Smith v. Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Detention Home Commission, Judge Conrad granted summary judgment on the plaintiff's race and gender discrimination claims, but denied the defendant's motion on the retaliation claim.

Something similar happened in a different case before Judge Jones a couple of weeks ago. Retaliation claims might be the easiest kind to get to the jury when something bad happens soon after the protected conduct of the plaintiff, whatever it is.
