Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Michigan at Detroit.
No. 2:17-cv-11282—George Caram Steeh III, District Judge.
Argued: August 6, 2019
Decided and Filed: July 6, 2020
Before: SUTTON, GRIFFIN, and READLER, Circuit Judges.
CHAD A. READLER, Circuit Judge. Karen Kenney asserts claims under both Title VII
of the Civil Rights Act and Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act. Those claims turn on her
allegation that her former employer, Aspen Technologies, Inc., terminated her employment in
retaliation for her complaints regarding Aspen’s alleged discriminatory hiring practices. The
district court granted summary judgment to Aspen, finding that Kenney failed to establish a
prima facie case of retaliation. We AFFIRM.
