In Celotex Corp. v. Catrett, 477 U.S. 317, 322-23 (1986), the United States Supreme Court held that summary judgment is appropriate when the non-moving party has the burden of proof on an essential element of his case and does not make, after adequate time for discovery, a showing sufficient to establish that element.
