Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Northern District of Ohio at Toledo.
No. 3:18-cv-01243—Jack Zouhary, District Judge.
Argued: July 28, 2020
Decided and Filed: January 15, 2021
Before: GUY, BOGGS, and WHITE, Circuit Judges.
BOGGS, Circuit Judge. Plaintiff Cassandra Thompson brought this employment-discrimination action against her former employer, Fresh Products, LLC, and the human-resources manager of Fresh Products, Dawn Shaferly (together, “Fresh Products”), after she was
laid off as part of a reduction-in-force. Thompson alleged disability discrimination, in violation
of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101–12117; age discrimination,
in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), 29 U.S.C. §§ 621–634;
race discrimination, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C.
§§ 2000e-2–2000e-5; and disability and race discrimination, in violation of Ohio law, Ohio Rev.
Code §§ 4112.01–4112.99. The district court granted summary judgment to Fresh Products on
all claims, and Thompson appealed.
Because Thompson has not established a prima facie case of discrimination, we affirm
the district court’s grant of summary judgment.
