King v. Cowboy Dodge, Inc.

Plaintiff sued Cowboy Dodge, Inc. claiming he was entitled to damages in tort because the company terminated him in retaliation for filing a worker’s compensation claim. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of Cowboy Dodge, concluding that Plaintiff had failed to make the required showing that his termination was “consequent” to filing a worker’s compensation claim. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that Plaintiff presented sufficient evidence that his filing of a worker’s compensation claim was causally related to his discharge to raise a genuine issue of material fact for trial.
