Judge Dale A. Kimball – Motion for Summary Judgment granted
CHRIS WILLIAMS, Plaintiff, vs. TIM DAHLE IMPORTS, INC., a Utah corporation et al., Defendants.
Case No. 2:03CV46 DAK
United States District Court for the District of Utah, Central Division
2007 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 16298
March 7, 2007
Plaintiff filed suit against Tim Dahle for alleged violations of the Equal Pay Act. As stated by the Court: “to establish a prima facie case under the Equal Pay Act, Plaintiff must show (1) that she was performing work that was “substantially equal” to that of male coworkers, with “equality” being measured on the basis of the skills, duties, supervision, effort, and responsibilities of the jobs; (2) the conditions where work was performed were basically the same; and (3) male employees were paid more.”
The Court found that Plaintiff did not establish a prima facie case. “Plaintiff has not offered any evidence to demonstrate that she and the other male managers worked under similar working conditions or that the same effort was required.”
Motion for Summary Judgment granted. Case dismissed.
