Board of Trustees, Keene State Coll. v. Sweeney

No. 77-1792

Decided November 13, 1978

439 U.S. 24


Where the Court of Appeals in respondent's employment discrimination action against petitioners (employer) appears to have imposed a heavier burden on the employer than Furnco Construction Co. v. Waters, 438 U. S. 567, requires with respect to meeting the employee's prima facie case of discrimination, its judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded for reconsideration in light of Furnco.

Certiorari granted; 569 F.2d 169, vacated and remanded.
