CathyinCali, maggie2010 should be able to assist you in understanding what happens next. By the sounds of it the Agency submitted a "Motion for Summary Judgement without a Hearing" in their favor and you through your EEO rep responded against the Motion. That's what I did in my 2 combined cases. If your case survives the Summary Judgement then your are headed to a hearing. If not, then the Agency will issue a Final Agency Decision (FAD) that allows you to appeal to the OFO or file an Federal Lawsuit in District court. The timeline for the EEO Judges working out of San Francisco's Federal Sector EEO Hearings office can really only be educated guessed on by looking up OFO published/posted EEO appeals on https://www.eeoc.gov/federal/decisions.cfm and typing in your city (Sacramento) or San Francisco looking at the most recently posted decisions 3/28/2016 seeing when the Complainants filed their EEO and when the Judge conducted a hearing will give you a decent timeline of how backlogged the cases are. Good luck!!!

Is anyone familiar with the time element for hearings with an AJ in San Francisco. I requested a hearing in April of 2014. Last correspondence to assigned AJ was back in October, 2015, between my EEO rep and the agency's Atty. Atty suggesting that AJ render a decision without a hearing, my rep and I appealing that recommendation. Haven't heard anything since. My rep is suggesting I hire a lawyer. It's been difficult to find a firm that specializes in these complex cases however I did come across the name Mary Dryovage (perfect) unfortunately it appears it was an old website as further investigation revealed that she has since become an AJ out of Sacramento. If anyone has any reference for legal representation I would appreciate that information. Not to far from Sacramento Ca. Any practices in the Bay Area would be great. Thank You.

Filed my request for an EEO ALJ hearing after receiving the Agency EEO Investigative report/binders in January 2013 after about a year in the Investigation phase. My case survived 2 combined cases "Motions for Summary Judgement" in mid 2015. Now the EEOC ALJ sent an Order Scheduling a 3 day hearing in mid August 2016. The EEOC approved her to travel from Phoenix, AZ to Fresno, CA for that week. We are having the hearing in the Fed District Bankruptcy Court in a vacant courtroom. For living in an area with a local population of about 1.5 million I will be the first agency (USPS) employee ever afforded an EEO hearing. Really more of a sad statistic than one to be proud of. Shows the state of our Administrative process is entirely unacceptable in "getting your day in court". Even in the event I win I don't expect the Agency will incorporate the Judges decision causing an automatic OFO appeal from the agency resulting in me spending another 3-4+ years either in Fed Court and/or OFO or both.

Don't worry to much about progressing on to the EEOC OFO on appeal. I did it in my case and the OFO just happened to overturn the decision (issued by the Agency) and ordered the Agency to fully investigate. I used example documents on http://eeo21.com/Fed_EEO_ofo_appeal.html to go forward in "the god awful LENGTHY" process. OFO is about 4-6 months in decisions overturning agencies before investigation and 3-4 years in appeals of an Final Agency Decision (FAD). NEVER request a FAD (unless you want to go right to Fed court and by pass the standard EEO process of a EEOC ALJ Decision). All part of "Exhausting your administrative Remedy" needed/desired by the Fed District court Judges.

jjmv, I want to add to what Former said. You stated that you "Received letter from judge giving me rights..." however inasmuch as you do have the right under this letter,you may want to file an appeal of the judges decision(with the OFO). The reason that I am saying this is because it is routine that the AUSA will claim that you did not exhaust your administrative remedies. It is a chance that they may not if you have an attorney but...

On April 19, 2016, you posted "I am filing EEO" and on April 27, 2016, you get the right to either file a case in Fed court OR request an EEO Investigation/hearing? Getting the EEO report only helps in the Fed court. So get it before going to Fed court.

Says, Check out Ernest Hadley's eeo book on case law, 2000 pages. Also ask (request in writing) your agency the particular policy in question.

Also, I forgot to mention it will be helpful to seek multiple routes in obtaining documentation to support your overall case(s). I forced responses from the USPS via a few avenues (EEOC, MSPB, Congress, OIG, Inspection Service, OWCP, Police Dept, Sheriffs Dept, US Dept of Justice and OPM) all USPS responses of which contradict other responses establishing some USPS persons in authority as "not credible" or liars. If your complaint involves a safety issue that the local Fire Dept could/would investigate I would speak/report personally the violation. Obtain the name and hopefully the e-mail address of any officials you speak with and follow up with an e-mail to that person about the status of your reported issue. If you feel you are being blown off then request a Congressional Inquiry from your local Congressman identifying the name, title, date and issue you have and which agency(s) you have the problem with.
