Lewis v. City of Chicago

Date: August 11, 2011

U.S. Supreme Court

Whether the statute of limitations on a disparate impact claim begins when an employer announces a practice that may violate Title VII or when it beings puts the practice into effect. The Seventh Circuit held that 300 day period for filing a claim with the EEOC begins on the date the practice is announced.

Status:  DECIDED. The court reversed and remanded the case. The court held that the group of African-American would-be firefighters had filed a timely charge of race discrimination against the City of Chicago.  Amicus brief filed in support of City on 1/22/10.  Oral argument held 2/22/10.
