Suzanne Chhim filed suit against the University of Houston (UH), and the director of UH’s physical plant, Tom Wray, for wrongful termination and for violation of civil rights under Title VII, Civil Rights Act of 1964. Chhim filed suit April 25, 2000, alleging she was terminated because she notified UH and Wray of her intent to file a worker’s compensation claim, and because she was discriminated against on the basis of national origin. UH and Wray filed a motion for summary judgment pursuant to Tex. R. Civ. P. 166a(b), (i). The trial court granted this motion on May 22, 2001. Chhim’s motion for new trial was denied June 29, 2001.

In three points of error, Chhim asserts the trial court erred in granting summary judgment because: 1) genuine issues of material fact remain on each element of her wrongful termination claim; 2) the evidence brought forward by the appellees was incompetent and thus incapable of supporting the motion; and 3) she brought forward sufficient evidence of her wrongful termination claim to avoid summary judgment. Chhim has not presented any points of error or argument related to her Title VII claim. *fn1 Therefore, only the wrongful termination claim is before this Court.
