|Docket No.||Op. Below||Argument||Opinion||Vote||Author||Term|

Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the petitioner in this case.
Holding: A court may review whether the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission satisfied its statutory obligation to attempt conciliation before filing suit. But, because the EEOC has extensive discretion to determine what kind and amount of communication with an employer is appropriate in any given case, the scope of that review is narrow.
Judgment: Vacated and reamanded, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Kagan on April 29, 2015.
