BOYCE F. MARTIN, JR., Circuit Judge. Merrilu Texler contends that she suffers from a condition known as multiple chemical sensitivities. She brought suit claiming that her employer, the County of Summit Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, discriminated against her because of her handicapped condition and retaliated against her for filing charges of discrimination with administrative agencies, in violation of federal and state law. Texler also brought pendent state claims for negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and assault and battery. She now appeals the district court's: (1) grant of the Board's motion for a directed verdict on the retaliation claim; (2) failure to rule that she was handicapped within the meaning of applicable federal law; (3) grant of the Board's motion for summary judgment with respect to her claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress; and (4) taxing of $4,136.90 in costs to her. For the following reasons, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
