Reaves v. Pennsylvania State Police

Matukaitis Law defeats Pennsylvania State Police’s summary judgment motion on behalf of black Probationary Trooper asserting Title VII retaliation claim. Case scheduled for trial in federal court in March 2013. Federal court rules that a jury could reasonably find that trooper made an implicit complaint of discrimination based on the evidence that he made numerous separate phone calls to the EEO, the PSP EEO Director knew that plaintiff was black, and the plaintiff complained of “discrimination” and compared himself to other white troopers in a letter to his Lieutenant who knew that he was the only black trooper at his station… A jury could reasonably find that he engaged in protected activity under Title VII.
