17-1180 7th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2017

Issues: (1) Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit erred in holding, in conflict with decisions of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission may enforce a subpoena after the charging employee has initiated litigation, even after the charging employee’s claim has been adjudicated meritless in court; and (2) whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit erred by holding, in conflict with the decisions of the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 10th and 11th Circuits, that a charge alleging only individual discrimination permits the EEOC to subpoena nationwide information about suspected discrimination against other employees in other employment practices.
