“The Magistrate Judge found that Plaintiff successfully made a prima facie case, and that Defendants articulated a non-discriminatory reason for their failure to extend Plaintiff’s contract by stating she was unhappy producing Shipping Wars, shifting the burden back to Plaintiff. (Dkt. # 52 at 5.) The Magistrate Judge found that Plaintiff raised a genuine issue of material fact as to whether the non-discriminatory rationale proffered by Defendants was pretextual, because she pointed to inconsistent deposition testimony regarding the reasons for their failure to rehire Plaintiff.” 2016 1441809, at *2.
