Here is what failure to make out a prima facie case looks like in its starkest terms

A Muslim software architect in Washington State sued his former staffing company employer in federal court under Title VII based upon religious (and national origin) discrimination.  His contention?   That when he was sent on a business trip the employer deliberately booked him a hotel room with the number “911” just to humiliate him as a Muslim by reminding him of 9/11.

The court ruled against plaintiff, who appeared pro se, since he presented no evidence in support of his claim but just “conjecture.”  In fact, the hotel reservation e-mail receipt did not indicate that anyone at his employer requested room 911.

His other claims were similarly dismissed.
