Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. v. Wetzel

424 U.S.737 (1976)


Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. (D) was sued by its employees for violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Ps contended that D’s employee insurance benefits and maternity leave provisions violated Title VII of the Act. They sought a declaratory judgment, an injunction, and damages. The district court granted the motion of Wetzel (P) for summary judgment for liability only, but not for any relief. D appealed, and the court of appeals affirmed. D appealed to the Supreme Court; a partial summary judgment is an appealable final judgment.
