    Case Name: Joyce Robinson v. Consolidated Rail Company
    Date Decided: October 22, 2009
    Court: U.SD.C. M.D. Pennsylvania
    Judge: Judge Kane
    Citation: 2009 WL 3488038


    Background:
    Plaintiff, Joyce Robinson (“Joyce”), filed an action against defendant, Consolidated Rail Company (“Norfolk Southern”), under Title VII for discrimination in the course of her employment and hostile work environment for discrimination on the basis of Joyce’s race.


    Joyce became an employee of Norfolk Southern in June when Norfolk took over operations in Joyce’s area.

    Joyce, as an engineer, participated in a yearly two-day safety rule training class including harassment. During this conference she was aware that Norfolk Southern had harassment reporting procedures in place involving reporting any incident to a supervisor.
