Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Order re: Joelle Ogletree (Oct 12 2011)

12 October 2011 at 5:03:58 PM


For the forgoing reasons, the district court’s order granting summary judgment is affirmed; its order granting fees is affirmed in part and reversed in part, and is remanded for recalculation of the fee award.

Read the case. Basically Joelle Ogletree brought suit against Glen Rose ISD alleging discrimination against her on the basis of sex and also retaliation against her. The district court granted GRISD a summary judgement and granted them fees. Ogletree did not appeal the dismissal of her discrimination claim but did the orders re: retaliation.

It's interesting to note on p 8 that "With respect to Ogletree’s retaliation claims, however, she arguably established a prima facie case of retaliation. We cannot say that these claims “were so lacking in arguable merit as to be groundless,” see Stover, 549 F.3d at 988, and the district court abused its discretion insofar as its fee award is attributable to Ogletree’s retaliation claims" Is this is so, then why didn't she get to have her day in court?

I really don't comprehend that whole thing.  How does a community and a school district become so defuse and myopic?  How does a court system perpetuate such insanity?

We just learned this yesterday evening, so it's still very raw.
It seems like October just isn't my month: last year cancer along with the final dismissal of the state case and now this. Also, the allegations and termination occurred in October. But that's okay. I get to follow it up with November, the month of Thanksgiving. That's when the criminal charges against me were dropped and also when SBEC voted to renew my license, the State of Texas accepting the findings that the allegations were nothing more than "fabrications."

Sounds like the same thing happened to us in our appeal against Big Gas in 10th Court of appeals. (case #10-09-00214-CV)  We also never got to present our evidence or case to the court.   Looks like both gumbos were cooked from the same recipe.  These courts seem to be all crooked and are promoting the local juntas when ever possible. As far as I'm concerned these Tx courts are overdue for a great big-ole pay cut--about 50% budget reduction is needed--they are doing absolutely no good for the ordinary citizen, nothing at all.
