Verizon New Jersey employee's claim was dismissed by the Department of Justice [telecom]

Filed 06/17/22

MCNULTY, U.S.D.J.: Plaintiff Marisa Powell is an employee of Defendant Verizon New Jersey ("Verizon").1 She has raised a variety of statutory and common law claims against her employer and one of her coworkers, Brendan McHale, relating to alleged discrimination on the basis of her race. I dismissed most of her claims in my prior opinion in this case, but declined to dismiss her Title VII hostile work environment claim against Verizon and her intentional infliction of emotional distress claim against McHale. (DE 43.) McHale has now been dismissed from the case (DE 102) leaving only Powell's hostile work environment claim against Verizon. Verizon now moves for summary judgment on that count, arguing, among other things, that summary judgment must be granted in its favor because Powell failed to exhaust administrative remedies. I agree, and for the reasons set forth in more detail below, Verizon's motion is GRANTED.
