Meritor Savings Bank, FSB v. Vinson Style: Meritor Savings Bank, FSB v Mechelle Vinson et al. The Supreme Court of the United States, 1986 Procedural History: In the case of Meritor Savings Bank, FSB v. Vinson, the district court concluded that Vinson was not a victim of sex discrimination or sexual harassment, because she did not suffer any economic harm, and any intimate relationship she had with Taylor was voluntary. The court of appeals decision remanding the case to the district court is affirmed. Issues : After being dismissed from her job at a Meritor Savings Bank, Mechelle Vinson sued Sidney Taylor, the Vice President of the bank. Vinson charged that she had constantly been subjected to sexual harassment by Taylor over her four years at the bank. She argued such harassment created a "hostile working environment" and was covered by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Vinson sought injunctive relief along with compensatory and punitive damages against Taylor and the bank. The court of appeals reversed this decision.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
