This is the second time this Court has addressed the issue presented in this sex discrimination action. On the first occasion this Court vacated the judgment of the district court because it had applied the wrong legal standards. The action was remanded to the district court for further fact-finding and additional proceedings. See Grano v. Department of Development of the City of Columbus, 637 F.2d 1073 (6th Cir. 1980). On remand the parties declined the district courts invitation to further develop the facts. Ultimately, the district court relied upon Texas Department of Community Affairs v. Burdine, 450 U.S. 248, 67 L. Ed. 2d 207, 101 S. Ct. 1089 (1981) and held that plaintiff failed to prove sex discrimination. The district court reasoned that while "plaintiff Grano was in fact qualified for the disputed position, the Court nevertheless concludes that the defendants articulated belief in the inferiority of plaintiffs qualifications is sufficient to satisfy their burden in Burdine." We agree.
