Strauss v. Microsoft Corp., 1995 WL 326492, 1995 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7433 (S.D.N.Y. June 1, 1995).
Factual Background Edit
Karen Strauss sued Microsoft for gender discrimination after it failed to promote her.
Trial Court Proceedings Edit
The court found that Strauss had presented enough evidence for the case to go to trial. In particular, the court found that her supervisor’s behavior, which included sexist, electronically stored e-mail messages, could lead a reasonable jury to conclude that Microsoft intentionally discriminated against Strauss.
