African-American Security Officer brought Title VII claim against his employer alleging that he was terminated because of his race. Security Officer was terminated for fighting after getting into a fight with a white co-worker, and argued that he had an actionable Title VII claim because he was terminated for fighting whereas his white co-worker was not. The US District Court for the District of Columbia, in Brathwaite v. Vance Federal Security Services, Inc., held that because employer had concluded based on its investigation of the incident that black security officer had initiated the altercation, it acted reasonably and did not unlawfully discriminate based on race in terminating the one employee and not the other.
