Hello again, Dave, and thank you for clarifying that for me.
The EEOC's determination carries no weight in court typically, so the primary concern here in order to preserve your right to be heard is to get a case filed within the 90 day period in the local federal court.
The EEOC is usually overwhelmed by the number of complaints it gets and only investigates a tiny percentage of the actual cases that are filed with that agency. Most go unresolved and a right to sue letter is issued to the complainant permitting them to then sue the employer in federal court. The agency's dismissal does not weaken your case in any way, but your case will be time-barred if you do not get a suit filed in the local federal court within the 90 day time-frame so that is what I would focus on at this point.
Congress oversees the EEOC, so you can write your representatives and senators in Congress who could request hearings with regard to the agencies actions.
It would be best though if you retained a local attorney to represent you in your case since suit must be filed now. Look for ones who take contingency fee cases if at all possible.
The process can be very distressing unfortunately, but with an experienced attorney representing you, hopefully you can finally find some justice in this matter.
