Court Revives Discrimination Lawsuit against…the EEOC - Law Blog - WSJ

A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims her employer discriminated against her because of her disabilities.
Oh, the employer? The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. agency that enforces federal employment discrimination laws.
Mary Bullock, who has multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus, was an administrative law judge for the EEOC from 1999 to 2007. She sued the commission in October 2006, alleging violations of the Rehabilitation Act.
Ms. Bullock accused the agency of retaliating against her for seeking the accommodations because of her MS and for alleging discrimination after her requests were ignored.
