Cole v. Harveyland

Date: August 11, 2011

Washington Court of Appeals

The issue is whether Washington courts have jurisdiction to hear employment discrimination suits against employers with fewer than eight employees.  The Washington Law Against Discrimination says that small employers are exempt from the law.  The court will determine whether the exemption operates as a jurisdictional bar. 

Status:  PENDING. Amicus brief filed in support of employer on 11/1/10.
