A white deputy sheriff alleged that he was fired because of his race. The Sheriff said he was fired for using excessive force when arresting an African American. The deputy sheriff claimed to be the victim of race-related politics. A jury found unlawful discrimination. The Fifth Circuit reversed finding that there was no evidence that the deputy sheriff’s race – as opposed to the alleged criminal’s race – was a motivating factor.
