MAETTA VANCE, PETITIONER v. BALL STATE UNIVERSITY

on writ of certiorari to the united states court of appeals for the seventh circuit

[June 24, 2013]

     Justice Thomas, concurring.

     I continue to believe that Burlington Industries, Inc. v. Ellerth, 524 U. S. 742 (1998) , and Faragher v. Boca Raton, 524 U. S. 775 (1998) , were wrongly decided. See ante, at 8. However, I join the opinion because it provides the narrowest and most workable rule for when an employer may be held vicariously liable for an employee’s harassment.
