7th Circuit Won’t Reconsider Ruling In Appeal Over EEOC’s Continued Investigation

Mealey's (December 6, 2017, 1:24 PM EST) -- CHICAGO — The Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Nov. 21 denied a petition rehearing en banc filed by Union Pacific Railroad Co. after the appellate panel ruled in August that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission may continue investigating an employer by seeking enforcement of its subpoena even after issuing a right-to-sue notice to the charging individuals and the dismissal of those individuals’ lawsuit (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Union Pacific Railroad Company, No. 15-3452, 7th Cir., 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 23644).
