Buckner claims her supervisor fired her because she wears traditional Islamic dress.
DOVES filed a counter-claim in June, which Buckner's attorney did not respond to by the required deadline.
The DOVES lawyer asked Judge Norman Moon today to dismiss the suit.

The federal government has filed a sexual harassment complaint against Advance Auto.
The lawsuit says the company created a hostile work environment by failing to protect a former employee.
Lisa Delp, a cashier at the Wytheville store, says a customer harassed her on several occasions, starting about two years ago.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigated and says Advance Auto failed to follow its policies and take care of the problem.
Advance Auto says once it learned of the improper behavior, it took steps to address it, and banned the customer from its stores.
The company says it does not tolerate any type of harassment and works to provide a safe and respectful workplace.

(( From 1978 through 1986 - before the arrival of Beamer Ball in Blacksburg. Bill Dooley dominated the landscape. As head football coach and athletic director he was all powerful - feared and often jeered by the administration in Burress Hall, but simply adored by his players. Back then the Stallions and not the Untouchables ran roughshod on the opposition and Bruce Smith and Mike Johnson were the ringleaders on defense. Under his administration, lights went up at Lane Stadium, the East side expansion was completed and the Hokies proved they could win in the Carrier Dome. It's tough for many to swallow - but the truth is Dooley helped set the table for the success that you see in Blacksburg today. ((BILL DOOLEY:)) Dooley, who has been inducted into 7 different hall of fames, was in Winston-Salem this past weekend celebrating the 10th anniversary of his last bowl team the 1992 Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
