(2008) Effective Summary Judgment Motions

Written especially for the EEOC practitioner, Effective Summary Judgment Motions combines the knowledge and experience of a longtime advocate, Ernest Hadley, and a former EEOC administrative judge, Eleanor Laws. This guide offers practitioners step-by-step instruction on effectively preparing or opposing a motion for summary judgment. Each chapter is carefully written to distinguish between motions and oppositions by agencies versus those of complainants.

The authors thoroughly discuss the EEOC’s case law interpreting summary judgment standards, and note common themes and trends to help the reader determine when summary judgment motions are more likely to be successful. Sample motions and practice tips supplement a text that is designed to teach the practitioner how to effectively use summary judgment as an offensive and defensive litigation tool. Practitioners depend on this text for instruction on:

  • Rules, Regulations, and Guidance—including Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, EEOC regulations, EEO Management Directive 110, and Judge’s Handbook
  • Summary Judgment Standards—including “genuine disputes of material fact” and “judgment as a matter of law” standards, burden of proof for summary judgment, and appellate standards
  • Written Motion Papers—including form and content requirements of the written pleading, and oppositions to summary judgment
  • Intentional Discrimination Cases—including circumstantial evidence, sample agency and complainant motions, pretext, and mixed motive cases
  • Harassment Cases—including discussion of the difference between tangible employment action cases and hostile environment cases in relation to substantive harassment analysis, the rules of agency liability, and drafting the summary judgment motion; and summary judgment on liability
  • Disability Cases—including summary judgment motions addressing reasonable accommodation and qualified individual with a disability standards
  • Reprisal Cases—including discussion of summary judgment motions for agencies and complainants
  • Religious Accommodation Cases—including the definitions of “reasonable” accommodation and undue hardship
