During the past year, the Second Circuit decided three cases that guide district courts in ruling on summary judgment motions in cases brought under the federal anti-discrimination laws: Gallagher v. Delaney,139 F3d 338 (2d Cir. 1998), Norton v. Sam’s Club, 145 F3d 114 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 119 S. Ct. 511 (1998) and Distasio v. Perkin Elmer Corp., 157 F3d 55 (2d Cir. 1998).
