Chavez v. Credit Nation Auto Sales (USA)

Jennifer Chavez filed a lawsuit for sex discrimination and alleges she was terminated from her position as a mechanic because she is a transgender woman. Chavez lost on summary judgment and appealed. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit reversed, concluding that triable issues of fact exist as to (1) her employer’s discriminatory intent and (2) whether gender bias was “a motivating factor” in Credit Nation’s terminating her.
