Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In plaintiff's employment discrimination and retaliation suit against defendant-agency for being suspended as an administrative law judge on three occasions subsequent to her filing a charge with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing alleging that travel assignments were made discriminatorily, judgment in favor of plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) the doctrine of res judicata does not preclude a state employee from pursuing both internal administrative civil service remedies and those available under the Fair Employment Housing Act; 2) although the doctrine of collateral estoppel may act to preclude a retaliation claim if issues decided in the administrative action eliminate a necessary element of the employee's case, in this case, the administrative agency's findings do not eliminate a necessary element of plaintiff's retaliation action; and 3) there was sufficient evidence to support the jury's verdict.
