MEMORANDUM & ORDER
- against THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK,THE CITY
SCHOOL DISTRICT OF THE CITY OF
NEW YORK,and ESTHER GUTWEIN,
DEARIE, District Judge
In their motion for summary judgment and objections to Magistrate Judge Orenstein's
Report and Recommendation, defendants have marshaled considerable evidence in an attempt to
defeat plaintiff's claims of discrimination. But the ultimate decision in this case must be the
jury's. Plaintiff has met her modest burden of establishing a prima facie case of discrimination
and the record does reflect evidence that, when construed in the light favorable to the plaintiff,
would permit a reasonable factflnder to find in her favor. Having considered the objections, I
adopt the recommendation and deny the motion.
The matter will proceed to trial as scheduled.
