UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
July 21, 2010
NICOLE NORRIS, PLAINTIFF,
BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Henry H. Kennedy, Jr. United States District Judge
Nicole Norris brings this action against the Board of Trustees of the University of the District of Columbia ("Board")*fn1 alleging reverse race discrimination in violation of 42 U.S.C. § 1981 and the D.C. Human Rights Act, D.C. Code § 2-1402.41. The case arises from Norris's treatment while she was enrolled as a student in the nursing program at the University of the District of Columbia.
Before the Court is the Board's motion for summary judgment [#41] and the accompanying statement of material facts not in dispute. Norris has not opposed this motion.*fn2 In accordance with Local Civil Rule 7, because Norris has not controverted the facts identified in defendant's statement of material facts, the Court treats such facts as admitted. See LCvR 7(h)(1) ("In determining a motion for summary judgment, the court may assume that facts identified by the moving party in its statement of material facts are admitted, unless such a fact is controverted in the statement of genuine issues filed in opposition to the motion."). Based on those admitted facts, defendant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.
Accordingly, the Court concludes that the Board's motion should be granted. An appropriate order accompanies this memorandum opinion.
