|14-613||10th Cir.||Nov 30, 2015||May 23, 2016||7-1||Sotomayor||OT 2015|
Holding: (1) Because part of the "matter alleged to be discriminatory" in a constructive-discharge claim alleging discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is an employee's resignation, the forty-five-day limitations period for contacting an Equal Employment Opportunity counselor for such action (a prerequisite to filing a lawsuit alleging discrimination) begins running only after an employee resigns; and (2) a constructive-discharge claim accrues -- and the limitations period begins to run -- when the employee gives notice of his resignation, not on the effective date thereof.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded, 7-1, in an opinion by Justice Sotomayor on May 23, 2016. Justice Alito filed an opinion concurring in the judgment. Justice Thomas filed a dissenting opinion.

NEW: SCOTUS agrees to take up NINE new cases, including Gonzalez v. Google, involving the scope of tech companies' immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The order list is not yet posted on the court's website, but here is a link: https://www.scotusblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/100322ZOR.pdf
Today at SCOTUS: It's the opening day of the 2022-23 term. At 9:30 a.m. EDT, the court will issue orders, which may include cert grants from last week's "long conference." Then, at 10, the court will hear two arguments as Ketanji Brown Jackson takes the bench for the first time.

Justice Jackson's investiture ceremony has concluded. After the ceremony, she took the traditional walk down the court's front steps, accompanied by the chief justice. She also shared a moment with her husband, Patrick, on the plaza after the ceremony. Photos by @katieleebarlow.
Today at SCOTUS: The investiture of Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to serve as a justice. Jackson was sworn in over the summer, so the investiture is purely ceremonial. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reportedly are expected to attend the invite-only event at the court.
