Thank-you for replying so quickly. This is my last shot to keep my case from being dismissed. My reply is imperative as I did not clarify this in my "Answer" to the Fed. Court in July. No attorneys wanted to take my case because of the Eleventh Amendent. I do believe your advice will keep me from being dismissed. Thanks so much for your help. Thanks again.
I have been a year and ten months getting to this point and am afraid if I go to state court that the "good old boy" syndrome would kick in and I would loose my case. I have a chance with the Federal Court as they believe in my case. There was a "Report & Recommendation" done on a hearing on 7/22/13 for dismissal on four points. I received the Report & Recommendation and it denied three of the four points, bascially saying the defendant is quilty of Age Discrimination and Hostile Work Enviornment but the 4th point is the Relief sought from the plaintiff. If I can "Answer" that correctly, my case will go to trial but, I prefer to mediate w/the state for monetary compensation and be done with it. Is this feasible and, should I respond with your first or second answer, if you were in my shoes?
I replied @11:37 pm 9/3/13 and did not receive an answer, can I send again?
Thanks for your help, I will take my chances w/the Feds.
I am sorry to keep bothering you but I want to clarify your last answer. I want to request reinstatement to a specific position other than the one I had and front and back pay as I feel I would be black balled if I returned to any position. Of course I would give ample reasons for not wanting to return. Can I legally request "front & back" pay or would the Fed. Court view that as monetary compensation? Also, I understand that Fed. EEOC has granted up to 300,000.00 for pain and suffering on some cases. Can the Fed. Court do the same? I went through all state remedies to get my job back and that did not happen so that is why I ended up in the Fed. Cts., through EEOC. I filed with them for Age Discrimination and Hostile Work Enviornment.
