I accidently lost the website and question I proposed to Tina. I will start again. I will need to meet with you to discuss this case as it is too complicated to discuss over the internet, I am available on Jan 3, 2013 after 1:30 PM. This case was an age discrination suit. The case was XXXXXXXXXXXXXX . This case was filed in 1987 and there was a SUMMARY JUDGEMENT against myself, XXXXXXXXXXX in the same year. I was told that President Obama passed a law in 2012 that would allow age discrimination suits to reopened. If there is any possibility that I could speak to you by phone (XXX) XXX-XXXX, XXXXXX and my e-mail [email protected]
I am now on Social Security but I suffered greatly when this happened. I just need to know if there is a possibility of reopening my case. I understand that President Obama passed a law allowing for age discrimination cases to be reopened. Is there such a law, that is what I need to know. Thank You, XXXXX XXXXX
Hello again, William.Unfortunately, the time to pursue your claim would have lapsed long ago I'm afraid to say. While there have been new laws passed with regard to pay equity, there has not been a new law enacted that would permit a party to pursue a long since closed age discrimination case.Only if there were new allegations of discrimination over the past 300 days would one typically have grounds to pursue such a claim through the EEOC and ultimately federal court if necessary.I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the decision of the appellate court would be final at this point and there would typically be no means to pursue further legal action on that claim.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you.
