IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
January 19, 2007
KINYATA GLASS, PLAINTIFF,
ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
On April 27, 2005, Kinyata Glass filed suit against her employer, the Illinois Department of Transportation ("IDOT"), pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq. (Doc. 1). Specifically, Glass alleges that IDOT discriminated her on the basis of sex, race, and religion and created a hostile work environment for her. On September 6, 2005, the Court dismissed with prejudice Glass' hostile work environment, race and sex discrimination claims as these claims were beyond the scope of her EEOC charge.
Now before the Court is IDOT's June 23, 2006 motion and memorandum of law to strike portions of Plaintiff's brief in response to Defendant's motion for summary judgment (Doc. 39). As of this date, Glass has not responded to the motion to strike. Pursuant to LOCAL RULE 7.1(g), the Court considers this failure to respond an admission of the merits of the motion.*fn1 Thus, the Court GRANTS IDOT's motion to strike (Doc. 39). The Court STRIKES her claims that IDOT failed to reasonably accommodate her religious beliefs and that IDOT's safety policy had a disparate impact on Pentecostal women contained in her response in opposition to summary judgment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
