SCHMITZ v. ST. REGIS PAPER CO.

March 8, 1991

KATHLEEN SCHMITZ, PLAINTIFF,
v.
ST. REGIS PAPER CO., DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: VINCENT L. Broderick, District Judge.

MEMORANDUM ORDER

This action was brought in 1983 pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq., alleging employment discrimination on the basis of sex. Plaintiff had been dismissed from her position as marketing manager in the bag packaging division of the St. Regis Paper Company ("St. Regis") in 1981 for reasons St. Regis stated were economic. I held a full trial and determined that St. Regis had been guilty of employment discrimination in the termination of the plaintiff. On June 16, 1986, I directed St. Regis*fn1 to reinstate the plaintiff "to a position which is comparable to the position from which she was eliminated." I further specified that plaintiff's new job should involve "working on forecasting and on new product development for film products, resolving problems with stretch film and rewriting the plastics manual."

After I issued this ruling, the parties apparently agreed to postpone reinstatement pending appeal to the Second Circuit. On February 5, 1987, the Second Circuit affirmed. 811 F.2d 131. In the months that followed, defendant offered plaintiff two positions, one of which plaintiff considered not to be comparable. With respect to the other position, plaintiff's counsel requested a full description of the responsibilities. Defendant furnished the following description:
