It appears there are very few attorneys that take EEO cases, at least that has been my experience. I recently attended "Handel on the Law".com ( a radio show program KFI 640 am) Law Day event- where there are attorneys available to answer questions (free of charge) in various types of practices. There were none available that delt with EEO cases but only 2 did offer some minor steps. One suggestion was to write the EEOC director again for more action.
A: As if that would have any effect. Good thing the advice was free.
The other suggested a "Writ or Rit (spelling??) of Mandate".
A: Writ of Mandamus/Mandate. used to order a federal official to do his/her job. 28 U.S.C. 1361.
That was a week ago Sat. Since then I have been researching the internet to see if there is any info. regarding EEOC cases that have been won or anything on what case history this judge has ruled on. There must be some way to research EEO cases but I do not know how. At least I would know how this judge rules and what cases similar to mine have turned out.
A: There are no similar cases to yours. I've never heard of action this dilatory in the past. Someone has either an ulterior and wrongful motive to prevent the decision from being rendered, or you have been subjected to what can only be described as the longest run of bad luck in the history of the EEOC.
All I have been told is that EEOC cases take a long time, but this long??
I am now very upset, but not sure other than what you have suggested to do.
A: You only have one choice: get an injunction/writ of mandamus from the federal court to force the court to act, and additionally, if you wish to pursue it, find a legal malpractice attorney to consider suing your lawyer.
Hope this helps.
