Date Filed Document Text
February 9, 2017 Opinion or Order Filing 119 MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER REGARDING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR NEW TRIAL re 116 MOTION for New Trial of Claim Under the Americas with Disabilities Act, filed by Vanity Benson. Plaintiff has failed to show she is entitled to the e xtraordinary relief provided for in Rule 59(e). Templet, 367 F.3d at 478. It is therefore ORDERED that Plaintiff's Motion for New Trial (Dkt. 116) is hereby DENIED. Signed by Magistrate Judge Kimberly C Priest Johnson on 2/8/2017. (kls, )
July 6, 2016 Opinion or Order Filing 65 MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER - Defendants Motion for Summary Judgment (Dkt. 41) and Amended Motion for Summary Judgment (Dkt. 50) on Plaintiffs negligence and premises liability claims and on her ADA discriminatory termination claim are DENIED, and these claims shall proceed to trial. Tyson has failed to prove that there are no genuine issues of material fact for trial, as is its burden on summary judgment. See Provident Life & Accident Ins. Co. v. Goel, 274 F.3d 984, 991. As discussed above, because Plaintiff has abandoned her hostile work environment claim (see Dkt. 53), that claim is dismissed with prejudice. Signed by Magistrate Judge Don D. Bush on 7/6/2016.
