The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a sex-discrimination case brought by a general manager of a Best Buy store in Savannah. The lawsuit accused Best Buy of firing the manager because she complained to a company hotline that her supervisor sexually discriminated against her.
The U.S. District Court, Northern District in Atlanta, dismissed the manager’s lawsuit, noting that she had complained to the hotline eight months before she was fired. Further, the court believed Best Buy fired the manager for legitimate business purposes, including her participation in a scheme to inflate sales figures in the Savannah store.
