The D.C. Circuit found that the District Court should not have dismissed the appellant's claim against the appellee for retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The court found that Title VII prohibits an act of retaliation by an employer that might well dissuade a reasonable employee from making or supporting a charge of discrimination pursuant to Title VII. The court remanded the case for further proceedings consistent with the opinion.
