Resident Fails to Show Discrimination

The Court of Appeals of Ohio affirmed a trial court’s decision granting summary judgment to a hospital after one of its former residents filed an action alleging racial and national origin discrimination. The court found that the resident – who had been the subject of numerous patient care concerns during the first and second rotations – failed to produce sufficient direct evidence demonstrating that the hospital was motivated by discriminatory intent or animus when it terminated his residency.
Glemaud v. Metrohealth Sys.
