the defendant is in imperial valley so I tried to file state court in san diego but they didn't take it as it's not the same county.
So I went across the street to the federal court in san diego and dropped off my civil suit application, which was returned to me for lack of details and is still awaiting my completed forms response
Oh, I read that state's have immunity to employees of the state under the ADA in federal court. Maybe too many details and it's confusing to me. I want to file an appeal with the EEOC but that option was not presented to me. So are you sure that the ADA is OK in federal court as it applies to state employees suing a state Auxilliary, not the state itself?
Wow, so is california a sue-able state already or is it like alabama that's not?
So instead of filing a civil case application against the water district, an auxillary state agency, I would need to change that to be against my supervisor? It's over 90 days so I would need to change or add to the defendent instead of just The Water District? I can add to other parts of the civil case application, can I add or change the defendant now before it's been accepted?
Because it's still being processed by me, with the original date withing 95 days of the writ of decision by the EEOC, may I still appeal the EEOC decision? How would I do that? Call the EEOC investigator that was handling it?
